    That was an interesting read. Especially the part where they talk about xenotransplantation. They are trying to use porcine tissues, because of the shortage of human material. There are these porcine endogenous retroviruses that are about 53% the same as XMRV and there is a risk that they could combine to form some kind of new retrovirus.

    Not much new information though.

    Thanks!
