pittsburgh guy also responsible for this: " insisting on XMRV/prostate cancer connection be "divorced" from the XMRV/MLV/CFS issue. I took that to mean: "How dare you compare this serious male illness to the one that depressed/crazy women get" yes very sound ideas....that will take forever...before we ever see any treatments...that is what i worry about. i want him to understand the urgency ppl afflicted with the disease feel now and everyday. i think he's very wise and i want him on our side...but i want speedy action. i don't wnat to wait 5-10 yrs for treatment. your last scentence is right on....we have dr's who understand (and treat) this patient cohort inside out...use their knowledge and the patient base...we don't need to start from zero. clinical trials could be started w/cheney, bell, peterson, klimas, bateman, enlander, komaroff, levine, burrascano's xmrv+ base NOW!!!! thanks.
