Treatments for Pathogen Infections:

(a) Viruses
(b) Mycoplasmas

Important Note
If tests show that you suffer from any of these infections, you can view the treatment options available and discuss them with your own medical doctor or consultant. These treatments can only be undertaken with the permission and supervision of your own medical doctor

The research and evidence cited on this web site points convincingly to a number of viruses, bacteria and pathogens playing a key role in subgroups of ME patients. It is important to diagnose the infections present in ME patients, subgroup the patients, and administer appropriate medical treatments to the subgroups.

Dr. De Meirleir has had great success with Ampligen combined with anti-viral and anti-pathogen treatments in his clinic in Belgium. Firstly, all of the infections were identified through several intensive diagnostic tests. Then Ampligen was combined with specific anti-viral and anti-pathogen treatments. Treatment is given for several months and up to a year. The results were impressive, and patients recovered from ME. Dr. De Meirlier has stated that an eight-year follow-up of patients found that 92% had not relapsed. This is highly significant. This strongly indicates that Ampligen by itself may not be enough, but combining it with anti-viral and anti-pathogen treatments may bring about better improvement and a high probability of full recovey. This was reported in the AACFS Conference of 2001, click here to view paper.

Abortive lytic replication (EBV, CMV, HHV-6a)
Dr. Martin Lerner has found that some of these viruses have special characteristics:
- abortive lytic replication (EBV, CMV, HHV-6a) producing host cell apoptosis as described by Dr. Martin Lerner. 
- IgM antibody to non-structural gene products (resulting from abortive lytic replication) as described by Dr. Martin Lerner
- coexisting infection by bacteria, mycoplasma, babesia, chalmydia, Lymes disease.
- this type of infection causes an increase in a protein called dUTPase, a biomarker
Treating and eliminating these infections (over many months) has resulted in recoveries from ME. The above markers are a very important scientific discovery and could be one of the main bio-markers for ME.

  • Combining Anti-viral drugs with Immune System Enhancement drugs

Ant-pathogen and immune system treatments. Treatment of 741 italian patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. U. TIRELLI, A. LLESHI, M. BERRETTA, M. SPINA, R. TALAMINI, A. GIACALONE. European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences 2013; 17: 2847-2852

Dr. De Meirleir has had great success with Ampligen combined with anti-viral and anti-pathogen treatments in his clinic in Belgium. Firstly, all of the infections were identified through several intensive diagnostic tests. Then Ampligen was combined with specific anti-viral and anti-pathogen treatments. Treatment is given for several months and up to a year. The results were impressive, and patients recovered from ME. Dr. De Meirlier has stated that an eight-year follow-up of patients found that 92% had not relapsed. This is highly significant. This strongly indicates that Ampligen by itself may not be enough, but combining it with anti-viral and anti-pathogen treatments may bring about better improvement and a high probability of full recovey. This was reported in the AACFS Conference of 2001, click here to view paper.

HHV-6a's growth is stopped by the experimental drug Ampligen. Ablashi, D.V. et al.; Ampligen Inhibits In Vitro Replication of HHV-6"; Abstract from CFS conference, Albany, NY, October 2-4, 1992
When HHV-6a's growth is stopped by the experimental drug Ampligen in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients, their symptoms resolve. (In a trial published in 1987, the same appeared to be true for "AIDS" patients treated with Ampligen.) Strayer, D.R. et al.; "A Controlled Clinical Trial With a Specifically Configured RNA Drug, Poly(I):Poly(C12U), in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome";Clinical Infectious Diseases, January 1994.

Will anti-viral drugs AND Immune modulators and enhancers such as Ampligen, GcMAF, Low Dose Naltrexone, Interferon, Zadaxin, Kutapressin / Nexavir, Isoprinosine, etc. be required ? Combining anti-pathogen medicine with Immune system modulators and enhancers can bring about strong and sustained recovery in certain illnesses over time. The following provide listings of known Immune modulators and enhancers :

  • Combining the immune system enhancing herbs Astragalus, Cordyceps, Rhodiola, Ashwagandha, Siberian Ginseng and Reishi mushrooms has been found to be very effective in all viral illnesses according to Stephen Buhner, the internationally well known herbalist.
  • Treatment for Immune system dysfunctions and abnormalities
  • Vaccines developed from animals such as goats, cows, pigs, etc. are being researched and studied for their application in treating human viral and pathogen diseases. This follows on from the work of Dr. Edward Jenner in the 18th and 19th century in treating Smallpox. We will include information about these new types of vaccines when they become available. There is a case of a Dr. Gary Davis who has had some success from using a vaccine for the HIV virus developed from goats. This vaccine has exhibited strong anti-viral properties, radically reduced the viral load and increased the t-cell count of HIV infected patients and brought significant and sustained improvements in the condition though it is the subject of ongoing scientific trials and research. Click here to view video testimonies of patients and doctors and video 2 here There is another similar trial detailed in this video. If these scientific trials are successful in the future, this type of vaccine may have applications in treating other viral illnesses also.

  • Combining Anti-viral drugs with Immune System Enhancement drugs

Ant-pathogen and immune system treatments. Treatment of 741 italian patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. U. TIRELLI, A. LLESHI, M. BERRETTA, M. SPINA, R. TALAMINI, A. GIACALONE. European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences 2013; 17: 2847-2852

Dr. De Meirleir has had great success with Ampligen combined with anti-viral and anti-pathogen treatments in his clinic in Belgium. Firstly, all of the infections were identified through several intensive diagnostic tests. Then Ampligen was combined with specific anti-viral and anti-pathogen treatments. Treatment is given for several months and up to a year. The results were impressive, and patients recovered from ME. Dr. De Meirlier has stated that an eight-year follow-up of patients found that 92% had not relapsed. This is highly significant. This strongly indicates that Ampligen by itself may not be enough, but combining it with anti-viral and anti-pathogen treatments may bring about better improvement and a high probability of full recovey. This was reported in the AACFS Conference of 2001, click here to view paper.

    - Science Daily news article
    - US News article
  • New scientific findings in the USA show that a significant percentage of ME patients are or were infected by Parainfluenza Virus-5 (PIV-5). This particular virus targets and degrades the STAT1 protein in the immune system, and this in turn leads to immune dysfunction. The destruction of STAT1 protein is one of the main features of ME, in addition to RnaseL abnormalities, PKR abnormalities, p53 protein abnormalities and Actin abnormalities. There is continuing scientific research to establish if this virus is causative, opportunistic or a co-factor in the illness. This research is being led by the National CFIDS Foundation in the USA which is continuing to fund and back excellent scientific research into ME. The Department of Homeland Security in the USA has also kindly assisted in this research and made some significant progress in terms of diagnosis and treatments. More information about these viruses and diagnosis and treatments can be found by clicking here.

Mycoplasma pneumoniae is treated intravenously with doxycycline 150 mg IV piggyback for six weeks followed by oral suppression with doxycycline 100 - 150 mg twice daily or moxifloxacin 400 mg once daily for three months. The goal of this therapy is a serum level which is less than twice the normal. The duration of time again is six weeks intravenously plus a minimum of three months oral suppression.
