For the very academically minded this might be interesting. It is some work looking at how EBV borrows from the host to hide from the immune system. The easy version is here-http://www.newswise.com/articles/micror ... -formation
and the very complex version is here-http://www.jbc.org/content/285/43/33358.full.pdf+html
The point is there is a mechanism at work that can be demonstrated and a target is identified. (there's obviously a long way to go)
In the complex article they explain how adenosine is mistaken for guanosine. This tends to support using Valtrex as a disruptor of EBV replication by introducing guanine to create a stop in the RNA sequence. In other words, using Valtrex makes sense if you believe the involvement of EBV is important in sorting out a treatment protocol for MS.
I'm still very well. Currently using Avonex, Valtrex, Carrot Juice, Coenzyme Q10 and I'm also finding the active ingedient in Olive leaf extract (Oleuropein) is of benefit. There's plenty on this if you google it.
I think it's a good thing to take on many levels not just for EBV.
If anybody has done some good work on Nuclear receptors I think it will make interesting reading. Some of them are activated by Retinoids (my carrot juice line) and Oleuropein and think we will find this a worthwhile field to explore.
