Last week I started to read Osler's Web! What a remarkable - I want to say, anthology (collection of stories) presented, of the recent history since early 1980's of M.E./CFS. I'm not that far into it yet but I can barely put it down. I didn't realise that Peterson and Cheney were colleagues in Lake Tahoe for several years and were like the CFS detectives at that time. They certainly were passionate about their patients and this confoundingly mysterious condition. Also so many of the doctors names mentioned, are people who are still around in the CFS research field. In 1985: One VERY ???? prophetic (remains to be seen) reflection made on page 25 was about Peterson and Cheney's belief "........that Epstein-Barr virus reactivation might be merely an epiphenomenon or a hallmark of the syndrome. What if something else, some other virus - call it agent X - was undermining the immune systems of these patients, allowing rampant EBV replication and other subtle biological disturbances." I had a laugh about that!
