    How likely is the presence of enterovirus without GI symptoms?

    I believe my ME/CFS was triggered by mono and I have improved with valacyclovir, I was negative for high titers to HHV-6, Parvovirus, and CMV. I am thinking about pursuing enterovirus testing through ARUP. For those of you who tested positive for enteroviruses, did you have GI symptoms that...

    Could the hydroxychloroquine + zinc coronavirus antiviral combo also work for enterovirus ME/CFS?

    A new study found evidence that hydroxychloroquine 400 mg plus zinc 50 mg daily has efficacy against COVID-19. This is in contrast to several other studies which found that hydroxychloroquine without zinc is not effective for COVID-19. Hydroxychloroquine is a zinc ionophore, meaning that it...

    We are so close: Petition to Dr. Davis to include viral research!

    Finally, serious research is being deployed into physical causes of ME/CFS, giving hope to many who had given up hope for a better future and had resigned themselves to a life of ill health with very little prospect of improvement. I for one am very happy that serious research is being...

    CDC: Enterovirus D68 causes paralysis

    After spending decades carefully avoiding the use of the word “cause” in relation to enteroviruses, the CDC has now conceded for the first time that Enterovirus D68 causes paralysis. https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/68/wr/mm6815a4.htm?s_cid=mm6815a4_w

    Viral Extracellular Vesicles known as ‘Stealth Spheres’

    Given the recent interest in exosomes, I thought I might share some research on extracellular vesicles that the media have, somewhat sensationally, dubbed “Stealth Spheres”: References: (Chen et al., 2015)...
