At this year's AACFS International Research and Clinical Conference, Dr. Dan Peterson of Incline Village, Nevada, described his experience with Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV6). Dr. Peterson stated that HHV6 subtype "b" is common in infants and has been associated with MS, while subtype "a" is highly associated with CFS. He studied 135 patients who had encephalopathic features (such as vertigo, headache, and neurocognitive symptoms) and abnormalities on both MRI and SPECT scanning. 29 of these subjects had viruses identified in their cerebrospinal fluid: EBV (1), CMV (1), and HHV6a (27), but none had HHV6b, 7 or 8. Treatment with the antivirals valcyclovir and gangcyclovir were unsuccessful. However, on intravenous foscarnet 8 subjects improved and 4 were able to return to gainful employment.
