Per CDC representative at CFSAC meeting a couple minutes ago: The CDC is relying on an NIH retrovirology lab to replicate Mikovits study. He just stated that they will be using Wichita and Georgia so-called CFS patients to replicate the study. Some fraction of Whittemore-Peterson patients will be used. For those who aren't aware, the CDC's/Reeves' definition of CFS patients, as identified in those areas, enveloped individuals suffering from depression and significant obesity. In sum, the NIH can't possibly replicate the Mikovits study by studying those non-CFS patients.
