    In listening to the lecture Dr. Mikovits gave in Sweden, I understood her to be describing the attributes of the LNCaP cell line that led her to select it, not so much the LTR response. Her "guess" as to what cell line (LNCaP) to use as based, in part, on it's androgenic response but I can't recall why that was a criterion for a cell line so perhaps it's just my fuzzy memory. She was a bit modest in calling it a "guess". Darn good educated guess, I'd say. Too bad it won't grow the "poly" variants Lo/Alter found.

    For me, this is where some interesting stuff really came out.

    First off, perhaps a new hint for a cell line to use:

    Perhaps a reason why serology tests are coming in negative:

    On to the prostate:

    So perhaps when XMRV hits the prostate, it either kicks off those really aggressive forms of PC or it clears and if cancer occurs there later XMRV is in such low copy numbers that it isn't found.

    The GI and lymphoid tissues seem also like good homes for XMRV and certainly areas where many of us have problems.

    Finally, we're left with a hint about sexual transmission.

    sorry I didn't read the whole thread but wanted to make sure this was seen:

    The vote they had just taken was to screen blood donors on medical history or diagnosis of CFS
