Welcome to The Center for Complex Infectious Diseases

The primary mission of CCID is to determine the nature, origin, disease associations, modes of transmission, methods of diagnosis and responses to therapy of complex infectious diseases, and to disseminate such information. CCID is currently specializing in the detection and characterization of viruses which have undergone a "stealth" adaptation to avoid elimination by the immune system.

A brief overall summary of stealth viruses, their definition, pathogenesis, and possible treatments for it can be read here. A very in-depth explanation of stealth viruses and its associations with other illnesses, which appeared in a medical journal called Exlore, can also be read here. More detailed information on the stealth virus can be read in the pages contained on this website.

Hope on the Horizon:  Stealth virus research has shown that chemokines are probably involved in the replicative process of stealth viruses and a number of pharmacological agents, including many herbal medicines, are known to effect chemokine production. Therefore, various combinations of these agents or protocols need to be explored to assess their ability to suppress stealth virus replication.

To that end, Dr. John Martin and Dr. Donovan Anderson are in the process of defining various possible treatment protocols. Information on any protocols as they are defined are not intended to be medical advice but rather, for the information of clinicians. Any treatment using any of the proposed protocols must be done under the supervision of the patient's doctor in coordination with the CCID.

A complete list of these chemokine modulating agents can be found on the Therapy page.

If you have tested positive for the stealth virus, this Lab Report explains what it means.

Dr. George M. Lewis has now joined Dr. Martin in researching and treating stealth virus infections. Dr. Lewis, has seen real success in treating many of the patients he has seen and he has written a book called "Reawakening: Reclaining Your Mind, Body and Soul from Chronic Fatigue and the Stealth Virus" which gives some examples of the successes that many patients have experienced from following the treatment protocol. Dr. Lewis has now started a new section on this website called Clinician's Corner where readers can read about some of these success stories.
