The technical name for the type of hypercoagulation seen
in CFIDS is "antiphospholipid antibody syndrome" or APS This
has been recently changed to HUGHES SYNDROME. A search of
Medline found the following information:
- "interleukin-6 produced by the myxoma(virus) could trigger an
immunological reaction leading to the primary antiphospholipid syndrome"
- Helicobacter pylori can provoke APS
- Statins are an additional therapeutic tool in APS
- Allergies previously not seen can be associated with APS
- Infectious agents have been implicated in the development of the
antiphospholipid syndrome (APS).
