    This is a very interesting article, and indeed may have implications for ME/CFS, as they are discovering more connections between immune dysfunction and the brain.

    I've come to the understanding--or have come to believe--that whatever affects the immune system affects the brain. So it's no stretch for me to believe that vaccinations, which produce an exaggerated immune response, can also injure the brain, and significantly affect brain function. And as we've seen from the large number of testimonials on this board, then leads to ME/CFS.

    A common cause of increased microglia is viral infections.
    at this stage i think its a stretch to say antivirals help through lowering microglia directly , i think its more than likely indirectly from lower viral load.

    I think they need to do testing with avs on cfsme with no proven active infections and see what bearing this has on microglia First?

    Too many systems involved in cfs/me.
