We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    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!
