    Hi Kim...


    Hey thanks for posting this Kim -- I just emailed Elizabeth and asked if they could videotape it and post it on YouTube...

    I'll let you know what or if I hear anything back.

    I am hoping against hope that this was recorded and will be available to view--Dr. Klimas has become the voice of reason, reasonable trepidation and hope (for me)!

    Waiting To Hear More

    Hi Everyone,
    I am anxiously waiting to see the Dr. Klimas you tube. I am new to this website and forum.

    I am so excited about the link between CFS and XMRV. I am a Canadian...eh!

    I would like to get tested for XMRV in Ontario. Does anyone know of a reputable lab in Ontario, CAN....perhaps Koan....Thanks.

    All you need to do is get your doctor to sign off on the test and then get a lab to draw the blood and then just ship it off to VIPdx overnight. They'll do the test and give the doctor the results. VIPdx is the only lab licensed by the WPI to do the test.

    Am I being paranoid?

    Hi everybody
    Sorry if i am posting this in the wrong place. Still a bit of a newbie. i have been searching the net now since the 8th and have not been able to locate any video footage of Dr. Kilmas lecture. If anybody has a link please post.

    Thanks Cort

    Thanks Cort,
    I didn't realize I could ship my blood across the border. I would hope that more labs will soon be able to test.

    Got email today from one of the people who organized it. There are technical difficulties, but they hope to have it posted.
  18. Hi. There was talk it was embargoed a few weeks back.
    On balance, I guess it's better to be drip fed these little snippets of the science of XMRV as it gives us more time to dream of better days rather than having a one off buffet and being told the next news release is in 2010.

    P.S it looks like the next news release on XMRV is in 2010!!!

    Hi Elisa,

    I don't know. They might not know yet. I will post when I find out. Or somebody else will.
