The value of the DHEA-annexed vitamin C infusion treatment in the clinical control of CFS. II. Characterization of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) patients with special reference to their response to a new vitamin C infusion treatment

This study is a counterpart of the pilot study on the clinical
management of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) by the combined
use of the old (annex-free) and the new
(dehydro-epiandrosterone- annexed) vitamin C infusion
treatments with and without oral intake of erythromycin and
chloramphenicol. We were motivated to start this clinical
study by 2 reasons: i) we have made a success in the clinical
management of autoimmune disease and allergy by use of the
old megadose vitamin C infusion treatment, and we therefore
took up CFS as a good candidate for vitamin C infusion
treatment; ii) In 1995, we received a total of 313 chronic
pneumonia patients whose clinical course showed a good fitness
to the criteria of CFS. We assessed the nature of the disease
by investigating the clinicoepidemiological aspect of our
patients on the one hand and the response of the disease to
both the old and new vitamin C infusion treatments with and
without the use of 2 antibiotics on the other hand. Results
are summarized as follows: a) the analysis of the medical
records of our outpatients revealed that chronic type
pneumonia epidemic in Nagoya Japan, with its onset of January
1995, showed no sign of its extinction by the end of May
1996. The patient population contained no patients under 15
years of age, and showed a distinct female predominance in
the patient number (207 females versus 106 males). In 1995,
we also experienced a simple cold epidemic with its onset of
January 1995 (162 males and 224 females). The majority of
simple cold patients were under 25 years of age in both
sexes. b) A chronic type pneumonia patient was distinguished
from a simple cold patient in 2 respects: firstly the former
required prolonged medical care (over 1 month) resulting in
an incomplete cure and return to medical care upon the
recurrence of disease, whereas the latter required short-term
medical care (mostly within 1 week) ending up with complete
cure. Secondly, the former required the long term use of 2
antibiotics (erythromycin and chloramphenicol) together with
regular practice of the old and new vitamin C infusion
treatments for disease control, whereas the latter recovered
from the disease after the short time use of a set of
conventional cold remedies. c) The clinical manifestations of
our chronic pneumonia patients showed good fitness to the
criteria of CFS. d) CFS was distinguished from autoimmune
disease-allergy complex by the method of clinical control:
the former required the long-term use of 2 antibiotics
together with regular practice of the old and new vitamin C
infusion treatments, whereas the latter was controllable by
the single use of the old vitamin C infusion treatment. e)
The combined use of the old and new vitamin C infusion
treatments rather than the single use of the old vitamin C
infusion treatment was more effective for the control of
CFS-a finding which suggests that deficient activities of
both endogenous glucocorticoid and endogenous androgen in a
CFS patient are somehow related to the genesis and further
development of CFS. f) Evidence was available to indicate
that the sole use of the new vitamin C infusion treatment may
induce a state of gonadal steroid excess together with
various other problems in the recipient. The maintenance of a
good balance between the old vitamin C infusion set
(glucocorticoid-inducer) and the new vitamin C infusion set
(inducer of both glucocorticoid and gonadal steroids) in
their use was of prime importance for the successful control
of CFS. g) The historical significance of CFS epidemic in
1995, and in Nagoya-Japan, is discussed in the light of the
new infection concept.
