U.S. Patent 5,604,093: Human Herpes virus-6 (HHV-6) Isolution and
Products (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; Health and Human Services) February
18, 1997 U.S. Patent 5,189,022: underlying viral cause of CFS (Health and
Services) U.S. Patent 5,242,820: Pathogenic Mycoplasma (Mycoplasma
fermentans in
CFS; Department of Defense) September 7, 1993
U.S. Patent 5,827,750: JHK Virus in CFIDS (Grossberg retrovirus)

This, and other controversial health topics, will be considered at the
Common Cause Medical Research Foundation's 3rd Annual Conference "Where
the West and the Truth Begins" to be held in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Aug
17,18 and 19, 2001. The Foundation also publishes the Journal of
Degenerative Diseases. For more information, contact Rose Stevens at or
