Discovery offers possible treatment for viruses linked to CFS

Wednesday 14 July 2010

Discovery Offers Possible Treatment for Viruses Linked to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Tuesday July 13, 2010

Research Brief

Researchers believe they've discovered the way herpes viruses invade cells -- something that had long remained a mystery. The new study, published in Nature Structural & Molecular Biology, provides what they say is a detailed map of the herpes virus "cell-entry machinery." Researchers believe this finding could lead to new antiviral drugs that are effective against the family of viruses.

Three of the 8 herpes viruses are suspected of being tied to chronic fatigue syndrome. They are human herpesvirus 6, Epstein-Barr virus and cytomegalovirus.

Any potential drug therapies resulting from this work are likely many years away.
