    @ currer, thanks for the link to the Silverman paper. Very interesting. There's that "helper virus" concept again, along with the decreased activity in the anti-viral pathway RNase. So, the concept of replication incompetent vectors becoming replication competent viruses under certain conditions in certain people is not that unlikely.

    This explains why the picture of ME would be so complicated, multiple factors involved. I came down with ME during the series of 3 injections for Hep. B, required for all healthcare workers when it was placed on the market. It is one of the vaccinations which causes an extended stimulation of the immune system. I can't help but to see a possible link to the vaccine in my illness.

    Will they ever come clean and honestly look into these factors when so much money and liability is on the line. I'm not sure it will ever happen.
