My interest was sparked considering if it is effective against any of the suspects in ME/CFS.

Looks interesting, but will no doubt take time to come to market, if it ever does.
I thought reading it, it could be quick to the market due to it still been a rampaging disease in most of the world?

There are usually high levels of antibodies in ME/CFS patients to the viruses they have. If antibodies were effective for ME/CFS, then our immune system, pumping out those antibodies, would have cured us.

Antibodies are essential for acute infections, but ME/CFS involves intracellular viral infections, and antibodies do not really help much with those.
