    This is a new study I think, done by the NIH. Negative...

    Thanks, Jemal. What surprises me is that Rachel Bagni is a coauthor here. I think she works with the WPI group sometimes, so she should know how to do it right.

    Edit: She was a coauthor of 2009's Lombardi et al. paper.

    She is also a former student of Judy Mikovits I think. Haven't read the paper yet, so I don't know if it's very negative about XMRV or not.

    It's possible it has an effect, yes.

    That patients with HIV don't have XMRV, really doesn't say a lot, I think. They have compromised immune systems, but that doesn't have to mean they have XMRV. And I am not even sure if the researchers from this paper can reliably detect this virus anyway. So I am not sure this recent study adds anything new to the table...
