en korrekties dr. Enlander






Kennelijk is het niet eenvoudig de woorden van een ander goed op papier te zetten...


Onderstaande korrekties/aanvullingen door dr. Enlander kreeg ik van Marry toegestuurd:


The story about a CURE for CFS/ME is a misquote.


I was interviewed by an Irish journalist about CFS/ME.

I said there was treatment for CFS/ME,

and a number of patients ( ...patience... interesting typo) were helped...

This was turned into a story about a Cure.


Another misquote was the statement that XMRV caused the disease.

I said it was exciting that a virus was found in a series of CFS/ME patients.

Irish doctor says chronic fatigue syndrome can be cured

"No one is treating this disease in Ireland," he said.




Due to popular demand, Enlander, who still holds British and Irish medical licenses, goes back to Northern Ireland at least once a year to see patients.




It was during a trip home several years ago that his interest in CFS developed.




"The treatments act on the immune system because we believe that ME, or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, is an immune system dysfunction," said Enlander, adding that to date 65% of his patients "actually recover from the treatment."


The cause or causes of CFS have not been identified, and no specific diagnostic tests are available, but Enlander’s study brings him to believe that the disease comes from the XMRV virus in the body. XMRV is a retrovirus, a member of the same family of viruses as the AIDS virus.
