For a period of 20 months the patients would receive IV vitamin is conjunction with standard treatment for a period of two weeks during active infection. Follow-up assessment at two weeks and at 12 weeks found the patients had less fatigue, the lesions were smaller and there was improvement in fatigue and concentration.
