New discovery with chronic fatigue syndrome

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A new discovery might someday help millions of people suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome.

Scientists say a virus that's been linked to prostate cancer might also play a role in chronic fatigue syndrome.

The virus is called XMRV, and it was often found in the blood of patients with CFS in a new study.

This does not mean the virus causes the syndrome -- just that there's an association between the two.
