    Nice to see so many well thought out comments at Retrovirology. Thanks for sharing them.

    This whole soap opera just has to be at least one more book in the making. It is so incredible if someone wrote it as fiction it would be laughed at as too far fetched.

    Despite the delays I still feel more hope now than I have in a very long time. Bless the scientific community for not letting this go unnoticed. I hope Dr. DeFreitas and all the CFS Docs who have stood by their patients for so many years will soon enough be richly rewarded with a great big "I TOLD YOU SO"

    Just read 'And The Band Played On', a book about the history of AIDS in America, and you'll see the incredible mess AIDS research was early on, all the while people were dying in horrible ways. All the political crap that was going on, fights, denial, blaming game, resulting in years of unnecessaily delays and hundreds of thousand of people dying. I am reading this book right now and it is really interesting to see the parallels with what is going on XMRV-wise, though the times and situations are different, it still hints to me that we have seen NOTHING yet, and that as said in this book somewhere, the 'light at the end of the tunnel might well be an incoming train'.
