Years ago, Dr. Jones was among the first to suggest that a virus – specifically Epstein-Barr virus, the cause of mononucleosis – might explain Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. At the time, “failure to find persistent evidence of Epstein-Barr or any other virus in the blood of CFS patients” led Dr. Jones and others to look elsewhere. But a renewed surge of viral research (such as the recent study indicating the possibility of a chronic enterovirus-CFS connection) is very much in the spotlight, and Dr. Jones is well positioned to provide an update.
