Serological and virological investigation of the role of the herpesviruses EBV, CMV and HHV-6 in post-infective fatigue syndrome

20 people (10, really – so it’s a really small study). 5 CFIDS with primary EBV, 5 CFIDS with non-EBV, 10 non-CFIDS who had recovered from EBV.

EBV, HHV and CMV detected with PCR.
Levels of all 3 virusses were similar in controls and they concluded that their data did not support the hypothesis of ongoing or reactivated EBV, HHV-6, or CMV infection in the pathogenesis of CFS.
