Zoonotic diseases are infectious diseases that can be transmitted between humans and animals.[1]

Veteranian Walter Tarello, who has investigated illnesses that resemble chronic fatigue syndrome in animals, has hypothesized ME/CFS may have zoonotic components as he and his wife, who work together, were both diagnosed with CFS.[2]

Notable studies[edit | edit source]

  • 1996, Possible correlation between Borna disease virus infection and Japanese patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.[3]
  • 1999, Borna Disease Virus Proteins in Patients with CFS[4]
  • 2001, Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) associated with Staphylococcus spp. bacteremia, responsive to potassium arsenite 0.5% in a veterinary surgeon and his coworking wife, handling with CFS animal cases.[2]

chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) - A fatigue-based illness. The term CFS was invented invented by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control as an replacement for myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). Some view CFS as a neurological disease, others use the term for any unexplained long-term fatigue. Sometimes used as a the term as a synonym of myalgic encephalomyelitis, despite the different diagnostic criteria.
