    Great news thanks for posting (though XMRV and family of viruses not mentioned yet) Slowly slowly all coming together and forthcoming US Conferences should reveal more. Pioneers still - not forgetting our dedicated few.

    Thanks for the Nursing Times article Min. I've made a list of their recent coverage of ME/CFS as it made me smile/sigh!

    12 October 2009 - Does a virus cause ME?


    6 January 2010 - Doubts over Chronic Fatigue Syndrome virus link


    7 January 2010 - Virus link to CFS 'in doubt'


    8 September 2010 - Chronic fatigue syndrome linked to virus

    :Retro smile:

    I didn't see it myself, but this story, in reduced form, was also in the print copy of the today's Telegraph.
