As you know... There is NO cure for Lupus.
There are studies going on, and have been, that are looking into that. THE EB virus is the virus that causes Mono. We are giving two tests during our bloodwork, 1 shows if we have ever had the mono (EB) virus and the 2nd shows if we CURRENTLY have the active virus.
Back in 2005 they did have some success (in children only) in getting the kids into a remissive type of state and they eventually came out at a deadlock.
So to answer your question... yes, this is something that is being researched (and I personally am researching it for personal reasons) but no, there is nothing that can be done to cure either the EB virus or the Lupus itself. The only cure for EB is time... basically letting the flare or virus wear itself out.
Hope this helped
