    The part on CFS and XMRV starts about 8 minutes in and goes for about a half hour. Good, if incomplete information. Great comments on the web page (at least the first two that I read).

    He mentions at the end, The PNSA paper (The Alter study)

    He says: "We're see what the PNSA paper looks like, if it comes out this week, we're talk about it next week and apparently that is a positive study, we're see what they looked at, what patient samples and how they did the assays."

    I think these guy are speculating, I'm sure they have no idea when the paper will be out. There was a quote about further testing taking a weeks. I wouldn't put your hopes on this being out soon. I'm going with two months, as a guess, and hopefully it will be much sooner.:sofa:

    I agree with you V99.
    2 months sounds about right - to do more tests and evaluate the outcome of those tests.
    I just wish it was sooner though.
