  • Not Sufficient Data (< 4 votes)
  • Gain Odds: If there is a change, the odds that it will be positive.( > 71% is strongly advised)
  • Danger Factor: Chance of a major adverse reaction compare to doing a protocol selected at random (Lower is better - anything less than 1.10 has merit).
  • # - Ranking protocols (considering Gain, Danger and size of sample). Red in Gain or Danger excludes it.
  • Data is self-reporting from self-selecting voters wishing to share their experience done thru independent 3rd party software for voter identity and tally (Yahoo).
  • Marshall Protocol has 5 votes which MP Admin deem to be impossible (at 100% remission already). [ ] represents the removal of those votes.

For non-complex CFIDS, changing one item may be sufficient for the body to deal with other items. In other cases, assistance is needed in many areas (in some cases this may need to happen in parallel and not sequentially).

A medical protocol is a treatment methodology. My personal opinion is that CFIDS is a complex disease with many different paths but that there is a general pattern. The different paths are due to different infections (that share some similar characteristics -- often the immune response generated), different genetic factors (for example, inherited coagulation defects) and environmental factors (including items like mercury [increases Th2 ], chemical exposures, vaccines etc).

The general model and consequences is shown below:

  • Infection (viral, bacteria), which produces
    • Inflammation, which include
      • Coagulation which for many individuals (90%+) includes:
        • Coagulation defect (inherited or acquired) that prevents all coagulation products being removed.
      • Increase NO production
      • Reduced T Helper 1 (TH1) Cell response
      • Increased T Helper 2 (TH2) Cell response

Many protocols address only one issue --- and have been successful for a percentage of individuals.
