Am J Case Rep. 2016 Feb 14;17:84-8.
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs Quickly Resolve Symptoms Associated with EBV-Induced Infectious Mononucleosis in Patients with Atopic Predispositions.

In these cases, given the atopic predispositions of the patients, an enhanced immunological response was likely to be mainly responsible for the pathogenesis of the symptoms. In such cases, NSAIDs, that are known to reduce the activity of EBV, may dramatically improve the deteriorating symptoms quickly after the initiation. In the present cases, the immunosuppressive property of these drugs was considered to suppress the activity of lymphocytes and thus provide the rapid and persistent remission of the disease.

CAN ANY DOCTOR OUT THERE SAY THE WORDS CHEMICAL INTOLERANCE, MCS, AND BACK UP THE LONG AGO REALIZATION THAT AT LEAST A SUBSET OF ME/CFS'ERS ARE SICK FROM CHEMICAL EXPOSURE? OR IS THIS ONLY GOOD ENOUGH FOR GULF WAR VETS AND NOT THE GENERAL PUBLIC WHO HAS SUFFERED CHEMICAL EXPOSURE? RATHER DISAPOINTED IN MONTOYA, TRAVELED SO FAR TO GO THERE, JUST TO HEAR "WE DONT DEAL WITH THAT" ? REALLY! SO GIVE ME A PRESCRIPTION FOR VALTREX, AND TELL ME "WE DONT DEAL WITH THAT " WHEN I SAY BUT I HAVE MCS AND HAVE HAD SO MANY BAD REACTIONS TO TRIED DRUGS, REALLY? GUESS WE STILL KISSING THE CHEMICAL INDUSTRIES ASS! SO LETS SEE IF ONCE AGAIN FOLLOWING MEDICAL SCIENCE PROTOCAL NOT TO DEAL WITH THE CAUSE, JUST TREAT, NOT TO VOCALLY SAY THE CAUSE, JUST TREAT, REALLY? WTF! INCASE NO BODY IS GETTING IT, VALTREX OR A NSAID'S ANTIINFLAMMATORY IS GOING TO HAVE BASICLY THE SAME OUTCOME IN RELIEF, VALTREX DOES NOT CURE EBV! SAYS RIGHT THERE IN THE PAPERS WITH PRESCRIPTION, THIS DRUG DOES NOT CURE HERPES INFECTIONS!
