    Hi. Had ME/CFS for 28 years. Doctor recommending Nucala or Fasenra for my asthma. They reduce or eliminate Interleukin-5, a cytokine. Is that a good or bad thing for an ME/CFS sufferer?

    Looking up IL-5 and Fasenra (benralizumab) in connection to the viruses associated with ME/CFS such as coxsackievirus B, echovirus, EBV, HHV-6 and cytomegalovirus, nothing much comes up in Google.
