    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...

    Fluoxetine (Prozac) as Enterovirus B Replication Inhibitor

    Have you guys seen this? I can't find much talk about it recently in the forum. Fluoxetine blocks the replication of enterovirus B, so coxsackie B and echovirus. This article from 2019 talks about exactly how it works. July 15, 2019 - Fluoxetine Inhibits Enterovirus Replication by Targeting...

    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...
