Study: CMV Can Reduce the Efficiency of the Immune System by Itself; The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) Reviews a Report

“It takes a ridiculously large chunk of our immune repertoire to keep this virus in check,” according to a report published in Scientific American on January 29, 2015. (1) The CBCD recommends two effective, natural remedies against the latent Cytomegalovirus.

“Infected with the herpes virus (HSV-1, or HSV-2)? The CBCD, which conducted two separate post-marketing clinical studies on the natural, antiviral formula of Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR recommends taking either Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR to help the immune system target the latent HSV.” - Greg Bennett, CBCD

Most people know that many different environmental variables can damage the immune system. Some of these damaging variables include ageing, radiation, drugs, stress etc. When the immune system is damaged, the number of latent viruses in the body increases, and some even reactivate. New research shows that the human cytomegalovirus (CMV) may also significantly damage the immune system on its own without the assistance of an environmental variable. Dr. Mark Davis and colleagues wrote that “although prior twin studies had hinted that non-heritable factors contribute to some autoimmune disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, the recent analysis was one of the first to quantify genetic and environmental effects on the general immune system … one finding was particularly striking. A single environmental factor - a past infection with common cytomegalovirus - affected 58 percent of the tested parameters.” (1) Dr. Davis is from the Stanford University School of Medicine.

The effect discussed by Dr. Davis is further expounded upon by Dr. Janko Nikolich-Zugich, who agreed in another study, saying that “Our research group recently showed that infection with only CMV, and no other acute or persistent viruses, causes defects in immune responsiveness…” (See Arizona State University Health Sciences Center, from October 16, 2014) (2) In other words, if an individual is infected with the CMV, the virus harms the immune system’s ability to fight other pathogens (a biological agent that causes disease or illness to its host).

This is important to understand because large numbers of people become infected with CMV by the time they are 40 years old. “Once CMV is in a person's body, it stays there for life. Among every 100 adults in the United States, 50 - 80 are infected with CMV by the time they are 40 years old.” (See the CDC, last reviewed on July 28, 2010) (3)

The formula of Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR formula is effective against the CMV and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with the (CMV and other viruses)…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (4) The study authors also wrote that, “We observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (4)

Both products can be ordered online on the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR websites.

Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.

Dr. Nikolich-Zugich also suggested that “improved control of CMV and/or reduction of CMV-specific EM accumulation could be beneficial for immune defense.” (2) In other words, by reducing the numbers of latent CMV in the body, an individual may increase the efficiency and overall health of the immune system itself. The CBCD believes that clearly, a strong immune system will help an individual to fight the many pathogens he or she comes into contact with on a daily basis.

What treatments are currently available for those infected with the CMV virus?

“Several drugs are approved for the treatment of HCMV infections in immunocompromised individuals. These drugs include ganciclovir, its oral prodrug valgan-ciclovir, cidofovir, foscavir and fomivirsen. However, the use of these drugs in immunocompetent individuals is limited by their toxicity, poor oral bioavailability, modest efficacy, and the development of drug resistance.” (2) There are also the natural supplements Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR, which have a formula that was designed to help the immune system target the human cytomegalovirus when it is in a latent form.

In light of the information presented above, the CBCD recommends that individuals concerned about CMV infection, and the health of their immune system, take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR.
