Zhonghua Shi Yan He Lin Chuang Bing Du Xue Za Zhi. 2003 Dec;17(4):330-3. [Article in Chinese] Li YJ, Wang DX, Zhang FM, Liu ZD, Yang AY, Ykuta K. Department of Neurology, Beijing Friendship Hospital, Beijing 100050, China.

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the prevalence of infection with Borna disease virus (BDV) in Chinese patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and control subjects, and to discuss the etiological association between CFS and infection with BDV.

METHODS: The CDC (1994) diagnostic criteria for CFS were used for case definition. Sixty-one patients suffered from CFS were from 11 Provinces in China. To detect the antibody against BDV-p24 on the plasma samples from all cases and 73 healthy control subjects by Western-blotting analysis.

RESULTS: 7 of the sixty-one cases and 0 of the controls were sero-positive for BDV-p24 antibody, there was a statistical significant difference between the two groups (11.48% vs 0%; P less than 0.010).

CONCLUSION: Chinese patients with CFS showed sero-positive identifying BDV infection, by comparison, anti.BDV-p24 antibody prevalence in patients was significantly higher than in controls. An etiological association may exist between CFS and BDV infection. PMID: 15340544 [PubMed - in process]
