    Rrrr,

    When you say blood samples, do you mean the drops of blood they collected from CFS patients for their commercial XMRV test, now withdrawn?

    Could they be holding off due to conflicting findings from the retrovirology group and later discovering in the blood safety study?

    I am guessing it is the results from the big CDC study... Dr. Katz is giving a presentation on the 11th and he is involved. Why have a teleconference if there is nothing to report but a negative study.

    http://www.ascp.org/LongDescriptions/Teleconferences/TH0037X.aspx

    Following the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

    •Identify the taxonomic relationships of XMRV
    •Recognize the disease associations that are being proposed for XMRV
    •Justify the emerging interest in XMRV in transfusion medicine
    •Evaluate current research initiatives
  5. Co-Operative test doesn't work. Are the CDC crazy using their data?

    This will backfire as peeps are XMRV- by Co-operative and XMRV+ by VIpdx

    Sorry, but could someone point me to a link where Cort's has posted this on his XMRV buzz page or where it was announced the CDC study has been delayed for a week? Thanks.

    The link to the XMRV buzz page is


    http://aboutmecfs.org/Rsrch/XMRVBuzz.aspx

    The information is at the bottom of the May 27th entry. I'd like to know more about where this information came from. It's going to be a long weekend!!! I hope the news is good but have learned over the years to not expect much from CDC.

    I just pushed over a bum in the street and stole his paper bag in order to do some breathing exercises. Unfortunately the bag was concealing a rather rancid bottle of cheap scotch and the fumes from the bag have blown me away.

    I have now passed out!

    Bob, pass the bag man... whooo... far out....

    *Bob passes bag to someone who needs it more right now*

    When you gain consciousness again flex, could you pass it round please?


    I visited a friend the other day (yes, I have one or two who stuck by me) who was painting his flat...

    I almost passed out after half an hour from the fumes... and he hadn't even noticed them!

    I had to leave.

    lol, flex I feel like you might throw up in it, leaving us all without a bag!

    BTW, are you sure it was just Scotch in that bag that you stole?

    rebecca... I think you still need the bag!

    But you'll have to get it off flex... and he's barely conscious! (that's if he hasn't been sick in it)
