  • The following is taken from a research paper on the subject Hokama et al. (1). "As a possible autoimmune disease, CFS patients may
    be treated by suppression of the ACA or by diminishing the antigen CL in serum. Previous studies have shown that treatment with monoclonal antibodies to B cells reduces ACA levels to normal in patients with autoimmune disease, leading to clinical improvements. Specifically, Rituximab, a chimeric monoclonal CD20 antibody, has been shown to normalize high ACA serum titers of patients with autoimmune systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune thrombocytopenia, and autoimmune hemolytic anemia. Rituximab may serve as an effective therapeutic agent for ameliorating the symptoms of CFS". (1)
