IACC and XMRV There was an IACC (Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee) meeting on October 23rd and a parent (Cheryl Emory) spoke eloquently on this topic. You can see her at around 2 hours and 43 minutes on the video here: http://videocast.nih.gov/Summary.asp?File=15381 She spoke about the discovery of XMRV and how we should further investigate the link to autism. Thomas Insel, the director and chair, mentioned that the intramural committee was "on the job" within 24 hours of the XMRV news being released. What that means, I do not know. I have not heard a word. I also wrote autism speaks but I did not even get a response back and there has been nothing posted on their website regarding this subject. Most of the parents that I speak to are not even interested in this which boggles the mind. I guess their child having a retrovius is more scary than autism itself. Not to me, however. I want them to have a life and be seizure free.
