Simmaron Research Foundation Study Targeting Roots of Immune System

 
 

Twenty years ago  the internationally known virus hunter, Dr. Ian Lipkin of Columbia University, didn't find Borna Virus in people with ME/CFS, but he never forgot the immune dysfunction he found.  Twenty years later he found more immune dysfunction in another study.

He doesn't know why it's there but he does believe that all ME/CFS cases – no matter what pathogen or other factor has triggered them –  devolve to a 'common pathway'. The fact that pathogens of all types – from Epstein-Barr Virus, to SARS, to Giardia – can trigger ME/CFS suggests a core immune deficiency lies at the heart of the illness.
