The primary mission of CCID is to determine the nature, origin, disease associations, modes of transmission, methods of diagnosis and responses to therapy of complex infectious diseases, and to disseminate such information. CCID is currently specializing in the detection and characterization of viruses which have undergone a "stealth" adaptation to avoid elimination by the immune system.

It has now been scientifically proven that stealth viruses do, indeed, exist and can be at the root of many multi-system neuro-degenrative illnesses, such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, attention deficit disorder, autism and other diseases causing behavorial changes.

CCID's focus is away from the clinical categorization of illnesses into such entities as CFS, FM, MCS, psychosis, etc. Patients are viewed as having multi-system illnesses due to persisting stealth viral infections. Treatments are directed towards suppressing the virus through activation of an alternative cellular energy (ACE) pathway. This pathway provides a non-immunological auxiliary defense system that can also operate in the protection from conventional (non-stealth adapted) viruses, including herpes simplex virus (HSV), herpes zoster virus (HZV) and human papillomaviruses (HPV).


CCID, in conjunction with MI (Mental Illness) Hope, has formed a Scientific, Social and Spiritual support program known as S3Support. A major goal of this membership based organization is to create a public awareness of the enormity of the medical and social problems caused by stealth-adapted viruses.
