Dr Mikovits spends time answering questions.

She talks about other ongoing studies including big co-horts one of which is on patients with Chronic Lyme disease being done by Jonathan Kerr. She says patients with Chronic Lyme disease are treated on antibiotics until the infection is almost cured but then the immune system can't clear the infection and they become sick again. She hypothesise that perhaps if these patients are also infected with XMRV retrovius, which can affect the function of the immune system, that is why these patients get sick again.

  1. This is very interesting, Joanne. Thank you for all the great info you are providing here!

  2. This makes real sense. I think for many people their illnesses are a combination of issues.

    My daughter's ME/Lyme illness was both viral and bacterial and she received treatment for both which for her thankfully worked.

    Thank heavens for these researchers and doctors who are trying to work out why people are so ill.

  3. XMRV was found to be a lab contaminant read Hilary Johnson's article http://discovermagazine.com/2013/march/17-shadow-virus#.UTRi-qKPT_-
