    I searched and did not find a posting of this (so apologies if it has been posted). Cornell is going to test for XMRV in the 1985 rural New York group and also the "Nevada Cohort" - does this mean the 1984 Incline Village outbreak? Wow.

    THE RELATIONSHIP OF XMRV TO FUNCTIONAL STATUS AND CO-INFECTIONS IN CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME

    "We plan to learn more about the association of XMRV and other pathogens with CFS by examining an outbreak cohort not previously screened for the presence of XMRV. Other viruses, microbes, and parasites that may be associated with XMRV will also be detected with the use of a panmicrobial DNA microarray. We will determine whether the presence of XMRV and/or other pathogens is related to the current state of health of individuals who became ill during a 1985 outbreak in rural New York. Assuming that most members of the New York cohort are infected with XMRV, we will amplify and sequence XMRV envelope genes derived from blood cells of 40 individuals who became ill as children in 1985. We will also sequence envelope genes from 80 subjects in the Nevada cohort known to exhibit a high degree of XMRV infection."

    JohnnyD,

    This has been called the 'Hanson' study at times.

    Here is one thread on the subject.

    I'm sure there are Incline Village patients in that Nevada group, but it could include other more recent patients of Dr. Peterson. I don't have enough info so say one way or the other.

    Gg,

    Just type the text, in this case 'Here' (I usually bold it first) and then click on the link icon (the globe) and paste in the target link.
