Parvo and Herpes, the horse or the cart???

I have been following about forty people that have been diagnosed as 
having cronic Parvo B19 infections. They are part of a group of over 100 
recently identified in a town of 4000. Symptoms and prior diagnosis range 
from encephalitis, thyroiditis, arthritis, Lupus, Chronic Fatigue, Lymes 
to Wegeners Granulomatosis and the more exotic. I have noticed that many 
of the people have some form of Herpes. Some have developed their first 
symptom of Herpes after a positive diagnosis of Parvo, some had them 
prior to the diagnosis. Cronic Parvo appears to linger for years in some 
people so it is hard to be exact about what came first. My question has 
to do with the relationship of helper viruses. I have read that some forms 
of Parvo require a helper virus in order to replicate. Herpes and Adeno 
are two of the helper virus that have been identified. Exactly how does 
the relationship of the two operate? Once you have a chronic Parvo 
infection, does it trigger the Herpes or vice versa. These Parvo cases 
are unusual and the number is growing rapidly, few practioners have any 
answers. Any and all input is appreciated.  thanks, Sharre
