HHV-6 A/B Antibody Levels Don’t Distinguish

Researchers at the NIH and Georgetown University developed serological tests for HHV-6A & HHV-6B. They tested blood samples from 72 CFS patients and 59 healthy controls and found no differences in the antibody levels or frequency of these viruses between the group and thus suggest that they are unlikely to play a role in the pathogenesis of CFS.
