    That should definitely help...but yes, I would think nothing will be covered until both causality can be proven, and an FDA approved test is available.

    V99 -- do you have a link to that Devanur and Kerr study from 2006 that you mentioned in post #90?

    I found these two slides very interesting, it looks like the CDC has the most sensitive test. This raises the question; why did the CDC find all of the 20 positive control samples sent from the WPI negative? We know why they did not find any positives in their study due to poor patient selection.

    My guess is diffrent people working in diffrent labs with diffrent agendas. But that's just a guess.

    I hope he's wrong about that 12 months! I can't imagine that is right. The WPI, I believe, has a patent on antibody tests and we've heard that Dr. Singh and other labs are working on one. Coffin thought we'd know about XMRV in about six months give or take and we're about there. Kim said 20 data presentation on XMRV in Sept - that's alot of new work! Things are happening. I think we'll at least have some pretty important answers over the next couple of months.

    My guess is that they were dropping a known sample of XMRV into blood and plasma and seeing how good they were at finding it. Finding it in a patients blood may be different....
