I am a bit overwhelmed about the information, which tests for viral & bacterial infections are advised to get done. So I've been compiling a list about the tests available, and would greatly appreciate your input if there's a test missing on it, and also would be interested to hear your thoughts on which tests should be given priority. My sources for this list are Dr. A. Martin Lerner and Dr S. Myhill. TESTS: Human herpes virus 6 (HHV6). Human cytomegalovirus (CMV or HCMV). Borrelia antibodies (Lyme's disease) & Co-infections. Epstein-Barr virus screen. Amoebic antibodies. Brucella antibodies. Chlamydia antibodies . Psittacosis (from parrots) and ornithosis (from birds) - rare Echinococcus (tapeworm) antibody. Enteroviral antibody screen (coxsackie virus, adenovirus, polio virus and echo virus). Helicobacter antibody. Hepatitis A antibodies (Total)- HAV. Hepatitis B core antibody HBcAB. Hepatitis B e antibody HbeAb. Hepatitis B surface antibody (post vaccination check). Hepatitis C antibody HCV. Hepatitis D (Delta). Hepatitis E antibody (IgG). Herpes I and II combined IgG antibody test. HIV antibodies HIV1 and 2. T Leishmania antibody. Leptospira antibody. Malaria antibodies. Measles antibodies. Mumps antibodies. Mycoplasma antibodies. Mycoplasma incognito. Parvovirus antibodies. Rubella IgG. Salmonella antibodies. Schistosoma antibodies. Toxoplasma antibodies Total. TPHA & VDRL. Quote: 'Over the last 2 decades, Dr. Lerner has treated and tested scores of ME/CFS patients. He says he's discovered that 3 main viruses are associated with the condition: Epstein-Barr (EBV), human herpes virus 6 (HHV6) and human cytomegalovirus (CMV or HCMV). In his experience, people can have either one of these viruses or a combination of them. On top of that, he says he's identified a subgroup of people who have Lyme disease on top of these viruses, and that this is the harder group to treat.'
