HHV-6 was found to be significantly correlated with nerve fiber damage severity by Latvian investigators. 51% of fibromyalgia patients had detectable HHV-6 DNA in whole blood compared to just 6% of controls.
Investigators from Japan looked at HHV-6 and HHV-7 DNA levels in saliva to see if they might be biomarkers for cancer-related fatigue (CRF) in multiple myeloma patients.
Antibodies to HHV-6 and VZV dUTPases were significantly elevated in Gulf War Illness patients compared to controls, and EBV dUTPase antibodies were elevated in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients.
A prospective study authored by Joshua Hill and Danielle Zerr determined that higher than average HHV-6B DNA levels increased the odds of developing delirium after cord blood transplantation (CBT) by almost three fold. Patients with DNA loads in the top quartile had a 4.5 fold increase in delirium.
Stanford clinical trial indicates that VGCV may have a clinical benefit among a subset of CFS patients with HHV-6 and EBV infection
Researchers at the University Of South Florida’s Morsani College Of Medicine have published findings that suggest ciHHV-6 is the possible cause of some CFS cases
A new theory suggests CFS may be the result of a pathological infection of the vagus nerve.
