ME/CFS and the Magic of the Canine Factor

    I have had some luck with ProHealth's Transfer Factor 200 which is supposed to have transfer factors for hhv6 and several other infections including ebv, I think.

    They can't say on the website which TF products are for which infections, but they can tell you if you call and ask.

    Antivirals worked far better, though.

    Drs Klimas and Rey, who are very knowledgeable about immunology in me/CFS, often use inosine for NK cell deficiencies. I believe you need to pulse it, not take the same dose continuously. You can search PR and probably find a dosing schedule.

    Valcyte for hhv6 and Valtrex for ebv. Inosine is an OTC supplement.

    I believe that the whole point of transfer factors is that they are antigen-specific, that is, targeted to specific pathogens. If you don't have symptoms of infection, I don't see the point of taking transfer factors.

    I used ProHealth products. The one I used had transfer factors for hhv6, ebv, and several more common pathogens, I think.

    @SOC, what transfer factor did you use? I cannot take Valtrex because of bad side effects and I'm having problems with Famvir. Valcyte is not an option.

    hey SOC. I ended up going with Chisolm Labs ImmunoFactor 2. I tracked down their phone number, they have no website.

    They also sold me Beta Glucan which I am taking for a week before beginning the transfer factor.

    I chose Chisolm because they have 100mg's of TF in their capsules as opposed to ProHealth's 10mg's of TF per capsule.
