The ME Association has posted a response. http://www.meassociation.org.uk/ind...erial-college-london&catid=30:news&Itemid=161 Imperial College, the research centre in the UK that has found no evidence of XMRV infection in any of the blood samples from people with ME/CFS that they have looked at, has announced that their Molecular Diagnostics Unit*is now offering their method for XMRV testing to the public: Imperial College announcement MEA POSITION STATEMENT Until we have the results from more replication studies the*link between*XMRV and ME/CFS remains speculative and unproven.*We do not therefore believe that*there is any point in*spending money on an expensive blood*test which is not, at present,*going to*act as either a*diagnostic marker or an aid to*management.* And any laboratory offering this test to the public has an ethical duty to make these points clear.* * We would, however, be interested to hear from anyone in the UK who does decide to have an XMRV test. * The latest MEA summary on XMRV can be found here.* A summary of the Imperial College research which looked for XMRV in ME/CFS can be found here.* * We*hope that*the situation regarding XMRV and ME/CFS*will become clear once results from the other replication studies appear in the scientific journals over the coming months.
