    John Hopkins has been doing research into the antibiotic Minocycline to treat HIV. They say that Minocycline prevents infected cells from reactivating and replicating without harming the immune system. Since there has been much talk about a retrovirus causing CFS I thought you guys and gals might be interested in the research.

    Minocycline has been around since 1970 and used to treat acne and other infections.
