    (57) The present invention is based on the discovery of a novel human virus that has been designated as a Cryptovirus, which falls within the Rubulavirus genus of the Paramyxoviridae. Disclosed are isolated Cryptovirus-specific nucleic acids, nucleic acid constructs containing the Cryptovirus-specific nucleic acids, Cryptovirus-specific proteins, isolatedCryptovirus particles, isolated anti-Cryptovirus antibodies, and compositions containing them. Uses for manufacturing a vaccine or a medicament are also disclosed. Also disclosed are inventive vectors containing the Cryptovirus-specific nucleic acids and host cells containing the vectors. Methods if isolating and propagating Cryptovirus are disclosed, as are methods of producing a mammalian cell line acutely or non productively infected with Cryptovirus; such cells are disclosed. Disclosed also are methods of detecting Cryptovirus particles, proteins or anti-Cryptovirus antibodies in a sample of a biological material. In vitro and in vivo screening methods for identifying potential antiviral therapeutic or prophylactic agents are disclosed. Methods of detecting a Cryptovirus infection in a mammal are disclosed. Methods of detecting Cryptovirus infection in a mammal are disclosed. Also disclosed is an animal model for human diseases, such as neurological, neurodegenerative, and/or neuropsychiatric diseases, including epileptiform diseases (e.g., epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and subacute sclerosing panencephalitis).

    this is an article that was posted about cryptovirus causing MS and epilepsy. This article says its more similar to the measles virus.

    Century Pacific Financial Corp. Announces Position on Medical Breakthrough

    September 22 - PRNewswire-FirstCall - ...Cryptic Afflictions, LLC has extensive U.S. and international patents pending and owns the intellectual property rights to a major and, heretofore, unrecognized human neuropathogen, an RNA virus designated-Cryptovirus. Substantial clinical and molecular evidence indicates that this virus is involved in the development of major neurological disorders including Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Idiopathic Epilepsy (IE); epilepsy of unknown cause.

    This evidence includes (1) the presence of Cryptovirus-specific antibodies in the serum and cerebrospinal fluid of patients suffering from these disorders, (2) the ability of the virus to cause virtually identical disease in experimentally-infected animals, and (3) nucleotide sequence data that indicates that the virus is pandemic and represents a single virus "species"-more akin to measles virus than hypervariable viruses like HIV.

    "Further clinical validation studies using Cryptovirus-specific RT-PCR assays have been initiated to confirm the presence of the virus within central nervous system lesions of patients diagnosed with such disorders," stated Dr. Robbins.

    Does anyone know who funded these studies?

    Notice, folks, CFS is mentioned in the first article, in very last words of it, and OMITTED in second article.

    Just as the NCF has stated in the (very, very long and well documented section in their Virology Research area on ncf-net.org)

    Amazing stuff, very believable, and totally blows me away!

    Can't thank you enuf, ulala, for posting the patent and financial info that's been hidden for a long time!

    They've been sitting on this info for years so they could get all of their eggs in one basket. Their agenda was to get the patent to encompass every aspect dealing with the virus so no one else could cash in on it.

    I have to go back and read one part again because they did mention that the patent discusses a vaccination and a medicament. I don't know how to access the actual patent but I can find out over the weekend.

    Also known as Parainfluenza Virus (PIV-5) in the research.

    Wonder if we should see if we could invest in that company Century Financial?????

    At least maybe we'd make some of the money off of the test for the virus and the meds that they say could be manufactured to treat it!

    If 3 million CFS, MS and epileptic patients take the test...and that's only in the US, AND they have stated it is a pandemic disease = big profits.

    Mind-boggling

    possibility. They obviously think they are going to make a lot of money on this.

    Paramyxoviridae is another name they call it.

    In the patent citation that I posted it mentions that in the actual patent a "medicament" is mentioned. I don't know if that means that they are mentioning a medicine for this virus? Anyone know?

    Maybe the Valcyte the dr. in Calif. is using with great success?

    Think if search it here on this site, will find info about it. posted not too many days ago...

    The medicament part is where they are going to try to set any possible treatments developed under the terms of the patent so that no one else can compete and try to make treatments for the virus.

    .........I have suspected for a long, long time. I was diagnosed in 1988...right after the first CFS case definition was published by the CDC.

    Follow the money.......

    I wish we could hear from Garth Nicholson on this particular subject......

    Horribly frightening.....and horribly sad.

    but HHV 6 has also been found in spinal fluids of MS
    victims . It would be best to know that they are correct , rather than offer false hope and leave many folks
    with dashed hopes .

    All of those who believe in prayer should continue asking God to lead researchers to a break . I hope these people are legit with their facts & not just trying to raise money thru hype to attract investors .

    that they have just been sitting on this.

    Thank you Ulala.
