Osler's Web: Inside the Labyrinth of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic
by Hillary Johnson

The drug Ampligen has produced very dramatic, beneficial results for CFS patients in controlled trials. The only drawback is that it has to be taken continuously for a year or longer and it is quite expensive. Ampligen works by restoring an important anti-viral part of the immune system back to normal ( the 2-5A Synthetase/Rnase L Antiviral Pathway). This anti-viral pathway is defective in CFS patients. Experiments with Ampligen are mentioned in the book 'Oslers Web', by Hillary Johnson, Penguin Books 1997. Ampligen is available on prescription in Canada and Belgium.
