Maybe this can help find some answers

Found this trial.Although no treatment involved could possibly help find some answers:

Judi 46yoa VSAA diagnosed May 2003 ATG/Cyclosporine/mycophenolate treatment complete remission ukn cause. I believe caused by stress while on an antibiotic or an allergic reaction to the antibiotic. I also had ITP about 20 years prior.

It's an interesting study.

Rather than look for evidence that a particular virus is the cause of a particular disease, they are looking for evidence of any virus in patients with any idiopathic disease (an illness whose cause is not known).

Finding a virus won't show that it's cause of the disease in that patient, but if they find the same virus in a number of patients with the same disease, that would make it worth studying as a possible cause.

I sent an inquiry

Looks interesting. I sent an email asking if I could find out more about participating. I'll report back.
