Lots of exciting ME/CFS diagnosis breakthroughs are happening at the Applied Research Facility at the University of Nevada Campus! Judy Mikovits, the research director, says in her interview with KTVN Channel 2 News that they are within one year of having a blood test that will diagnose ME/CFS. She also says that the Nevada facility has isolated and identified a new virus that may cause ME/CFS.
There is one thing in the interview mentioned by the news reporter that bothered me and shesaid something that I have never heard. In the video, the reporter says that “what we know about chronic fatigue syndrome is those who have it have a huge rate of shingles. We know the disease often ends up as cancer.” HUH? I have never heard that before. Please tell me what they are saying is wrong! I’m thinking that they brought up cancer because of the natural killer cells, which fight off cancer, are typically low in CFS patients.
