    There's like 3,000 people all waiting for the Cleveland Clinic to Tweet something. LOL This just came up on Google (grins)

    Some dull courtier posting the itinerary! Alas! I had hoped for Ma'am! That would have been great!

    Still, not far behind the Cleveland Clinic in terms of thrillingness of content so far...

    I thought the concept of going to a conference was to listen, learn and participate, not tweet!

    Good one George : ) - If this is the case it would be amazing to see if this equates to severity of symptoms! Is this possible to do with other diseases?

    True! But maybe they will tweet out during a boring bit! Probably too busy for now drinking coffee and trying to get one of the good biscuits before they're all gone.

    Once upon a time I might have been able to do all four simultaneously... multi-tasking... Now days it would give me a headache just trying to get the wording for one Tweet sounding coherent! (I had to re-write this post about 5 times!)

    More from the CC

    Man, this is really turning out to be a training session for the rest of the dum. . .er I mean researchers. So far everything that's been tweeted is old news. Buuuuuttttttt, that could be cause they can't talk about anything new?????? Here's hoping anyway.

    (big grins 4-Bob) Nah, I'm too tired to tweet, I just like being an armchair quarterback.

    #Possibility that XMRV virus may be contributing to CFS was a study Dr. Silverman's lab co-authored last year

    # XMRV is associated with prostate cancer and CFS in some, but not all studies

    This suggests to me that they have more quantitative data on androgen levels and XMRV levels. The notion I'd titre levels is pretty new. :)

    It should be winding down around now, maybe we'll get more than tweets pretty soon

    I thought Bob Silverman's session on prostate & XMRV was tomorrow morning, and this afternoon was John Coffin on host responses? Did the schedule get changed after the "final" schedule on the website? Does anyone know?
