Well, it's just that clearing the infection that caused the alteration (if it hasn't been cleared already) won't actually 'cure' anyone. Assuming this theory is true. You would still have to use something like gene therapy to get things back to normal.

I'm just saying, it's not much of a breakthrough in terms of practical application--we're still back at square one, needing a way to fix the broken genes.

No, not a breakthrough, just the current thought. The main application is that there is no one treatment that is effective for everyone. Symptoms and treatments are very individualized. Clearing the infection? Are you talking about chronic EBV? It certainly has been implicated in some articles, but if anyone came up with an antiviral for that, it would be well-known.
They are still getting mainstream docs to even believe that it is a real physical syndrome and not a psych disorder...

Well, I know that antibodies for Epstein Barr were found in my blood, but no evidence of an active infection. My doc dosed me up with anti-everythings just in case, but to no effect.

I thought the genetic proof was enough for most doctors, as long as they actually had read up on it.

95% of adults age 35-40 in the US have been infected with EBV (and therefore antibodies).

Which is why it's probably irrelevent. My theory on what MY trigger was? A tetanus booster shot that resulted in very high fever and severe muscle pain lasting days.

I remember a bad batch in the early or mid '80s.That company is out of business you'll be happy to hear.

This would have been in 1987 I think.
