A special symposium at the 6th International Conference on HHV-6 will feature a broad array of presentations on the role of viruses and other agents in CFS. Do viruses and other pathogens play a role in CFS? Roughly 10% of patients who get acute EBV mononucleosis or Ross River fever end up with CFS. Do these infections trigger other processes or is there an ongoing infection that cannot be detected in the peripheral blood? Do CFS investigators need to look in the stomach antrum, cardiac tissue or or brain tissue of CFS patients instead of the peripheral blood? What role do pathogens such as parvovirus B-19, HHV-6, enterovirus, Borna virus or EBV play in CFS? These questions will be discussed at a special symposium immediately after the end of the main conference on June 22nd through Monday, June 23rd.
One special highlight: Jose Montoya hopes to disclose his findings for the trial of Valcyte in CFS patients with elevated antibodies to HHV-6 and EBV.
