Discovery: a new virus could cause chronic fatigue

Magazine - Health Sciences and Tues, August 24, 18:46


Researchers at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and the Belgian company biotech RED Laboratories "are able to identify a new retrovirus in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, said Tuesday the VUB in a statement. These results corroborate a recent American discovery.

U.S. researchers from the University of Nevada were discovered in October 2009, the majority of patients suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome were carriers of a new retrovirus XMRV. Before the Belgian study, the U.S. findings had been confirmed by the Harvard Medical School and the National Institute of Health (NIH).

Research conducted under the direction of Professor De Meirleir (VUB) is a novelty because the virus has been found in sick patients from across Europe.

Moreover, the immunological signature is comparable to that of a patient with AIDS.

This new discovery will be presented on September 7 and 8 coming at a workshop of the National Institute of Health in Washington.

Découverte: un nouveau virus pourrait causer la fatigue chronique





Magazine - Sciences et Santé mar 24 août, 18:46

Des chercheurs de la Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) et de la société belge de biotechnologie "R.E.D. Laboratories" sont parvenus à identifier un nouveau rétrovirus chez les patients souffrant du syndrome de fatigue chronique, a annoncé mardi la VUB dans un communiqué. Ces résultats corroborent une découverte américaine récente.

Des chercheurs américains de l'Université du Nevada avaient découvert, en octobre 2009, que la majorité des patients souffrant du syndrome de fatigue chronique étaient porteurs d'un nouveau rétrovirus XMRV. Avant l'étude belge, ces conclusions américaines avaient déjà été confirmées par la Harvard Medical School et par l'Institut national de la santé (National Institute of Health).

La recherche menée sous la direction du professeur De Meirleir (VUB) constitue une nouveauté car le virus a été découvert chez des patients malades issus de toute l'Europe.

Par ailleurs, cette signature immunologique est comparable à celle d'un patient atteint du sida.

Cette nouvelle découverte sera présentée les 7 et 8 septembre prochains lors d'un workshop de l'Institut national de la santé à Washington.
