Great article.

It looks like the first step should be getting rid of the virus in the gut, if needed using antibiotics to get rid of the gut bacteria that the virus infects as a bacteriophage.

The second step should be getting rid of the virus inside monocytes that can take the virus anywhere in the body.

Can you please help us with some protocols to achieve that, Gustavo?

So, is there hope for me a person with RA? Could my Rheumatologist investigate these other causes including the persistent virus exposure and change my course of treatment? Do you have any other research papers I can share with him? Thank you Dr Gustavo!
