That’s pretty amazing but the exciting part for those of us with ME/CFS/FM is that the breakthrough describes how a common trigger of ME/CFS and possibly FM – an Epstein-Barr Virus infection – sets into motion a process that results in nasty autoimmune diseases like M.S. and lupus (and possibly ME/CFS/FM).
The research team’s decision to make their code available to others suggests we could know sooner rather than later if EBV has unleashed a similar disease process in ME/CFS/FM. If it has, then note that the search for a way to fix the damage is already underway. Find out more in a Simmaron Foundation sponsored blog
