    Hi

    Here are some good news

    http://insurancenewsnet.com/article.aspx?id=215406
    So whatever happens with the Dr. Alter et al. and the Dr. Bateman et al. studies, we won't have to wait longer than September 7 or 8 to get some new results, finally.
    I have been thinking for a long time now "why doesn't the WPI release some results, any results?". It seems as if they are now doing that.
    It makes the waiting much easier, if you know there will be something (even if we don't know the results yet, of course).

    Would this relate to the KUNR WPI radio clip on creekfests thread? 800 xmrv+ in 1000 tested.

    I never stopped believing from last October but this is wonderful.

    Good find, Eric! It will, indeed, make the waiting easier. I'm always glad to hear from WPI. :Retro smile:

    So does this mean someone from WPI will be speaking at the 1st Intl XMRV Conference (or workshop or whatever) after all?

    This is from Hemispherx Biopharma, they will be presenting their results not WPI.

    Hmm.. if the Alter paper comes out and is positive they will certainly want someone from the WPI to speak.

    Something similar was put out by Hemispherix a few months ago to investors. This company has a history of presenting info to investors before scientists, not presenting the full data, not publishing their results other than general statements and doesn't have a good reputation among many in the CFS community. I'll trust what they have to say once they publish it with numbers and stats.

    I agree with Hope123.

    Don't hold your breath for anything coming from this presentation. This is all part of their ongoing, desperate PR campaign to boost their stock price that tanked after investors learned that they indeed did lie in June 2009 when they sent out press releases saying that Ampligen was about to be approved by the FDA. That lie sent the stock soaring to approx $4.50 a share, but tumbled this past December when the truth finally came out.

    The stock is now worth about 50 cents. Amazing that the board of directors hasn't fired the CEO after so many, many lies.

    More on their history here...
