Has it been shown whether CFIDS 'allows' viral infection, rather than
being caused by it? Have similar virii been cultured from CFIDS sufferers,
or does each have their own virus?

When I peaked at Dr. Martin's Website, there was only mention of 'a
patient' in each case study, nothing seemed to tie the studies together.

Has the research stopped? The last update appeared to have been in August '95?

Interested, but sceptical,
