Open Label Research Study of Transfer Factor for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Transfer Factor has become the subject of intense scientific interest due to anecdotal research from doctors using transfer factor in their CFS and Multiple Sclerosis patients. Several doctors and clinics, including the Cheney Clinic, are finding transfer factor helpful in treating patients. To follow up on these findings, Pro Health is currently sponsoring a study of Transfer Factor for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). This is a rigorous multi-level study conducted by leading physicians to determine the efficacy of Transfer Factor as a treatment for CFS, and allows the physicians the opportunity to offer two different transfer factor products to their CFS patients. This six-month study will provide additional data as to the efficacy of each product over a fairly large patient sample, as well as offering insight into optimal dosing. Each physician in this study will enroll up to 20 patients who meet the 1988 CDC case definition for CFS on each of the transfer factor products for a period of six months.

Pro Health remains steadfast to the mission of raising and donating funds to benefit important research and advocacy groups in the CFS/FM community. Here is a list of organizations who have received funds from Pro Health this year:

• The National Fibromyalgia Partnership, Inc.
