Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Research Researchers and those who suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome felt a ray of hope a couple of years ago when a possible link between a mouse retrovirus, XMRV, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome was discovered. Through further study, that connection has largely unraveled. Since then, research to discover possible causes and treatments for Chronic Fatigue has been a priority for the CFIDS Association of America, which is headquartered in Charlotte. We'll talk to the CEO and Scientific Director of the organization to hear about the progress they've made.
