Lack of evidence for infection with known human & animal retroviruses in patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

www.ProHealth.com • January 3, 1994


We investigated 21 patients with chronic fatigue syndrome who
were identified through the surveillance system of the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta for the
presence of several human and animal retroviruses. In
addition, we evaluated 21 CDC employee controls matched with
the patients for age (+/- 5 years), gender, and race. The
viruses tested included human T-lymphotropic viruses types I
and II; human spuma retrovirus; simian T-lymphotropic virus
type I; simian retroviruses types 1, 2, and 3; bovine leukemia
virus; feline leukemia virus; and gibbon ape leukemia virus.
Samples of peripheral blood lymphocytes and leukocytes from
patients and controls were analyzed in a blinded fashion for
retroviral sequences; polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
amplification assays and Southern blot hybridization to
32P-labeled internal oligoprobes were used. All PCR assays
were optimized for maximal sensitivity on respective infected
cell lines or plasmids, and sensitivity controls were included
in each experiment. All samples from patients and controls
were negative for the tested retroviral sequences. Our data
indicate that none of these retroviruses plays an etiologic
role or is a cofactor in the chronic fatigue syndrome
illnesses of our study population.
