Besides all the problems with their testing methods, this paper proves that the Reeves research criteria does not include people with CFS or ME or even recognize them. And their negative data doesn't support much of anything. It is not a strong paper. It's time to dump the Reeves definition which is wasting the small amount of CFS dollars. It was obvious when they were using foster children for research subjects. We should write congress, Sibellius, Friedman and the CDC woman at the CFSAC meeting to dump this definition and stop useless research. And to support WPI and the NEI Center as clinics for a population without adequate health care. This study doesn't cover the same population and doesn't appear to use positive controls. The Alter study will be more comprehensive as they back it up with more work and will blow this one out of the water, as WPI already has. The CDC can't find CFS much less XMRV and they've admitted it!
