    Group hug across the Atlantic. I am so happy for my European comrades. It's about time a study in Europe confirmed. Would be interesting to see the cohort criteria.

    Has anyone called White and Wesseley yet?

    He'll continue to flip flop Tina.

    When caught out by XMRV/MULV 19 years later he says....

    "We're not going to go doing more and more tests to find out what was the virus because, frankly, even if we found it there's nothing we're going to do about it.
    We're in the business of rehabilitation."

    I am not particularly looking forward to a diagnosis called 'gamma retroviral disease' or something similar.

    Come on, people, what we have is ME, which is not the same as prostate cancer. Let's not let them force us onto another pile, after two decades of CFS.

    I prefer a name containing the name of the causing agent.

    Do you think ME can not be caused by gammaretroviruses?

    Or do you think gamma retroviruses can not cause cancer and neuroinmunediseases?

    I posted this on another thread, but it may be more appropriate here.

    Dr. De Meirleir needs to publish this eventually or at least get a good abstract out at the conferences. I'm skeptical of him because he's made all sorts of announcements in the past without good data back-up.

    Hi Tina, Good news! This on top of the last two days' news has brought our team back. It is like scoring goals and turning the play after losing for so long and being counted out. I am personally beat with all of the action, but thrilled.

    Anyway I wanted to note that Dr. De Meirleir was one of the authors of the Canadian Consensus Definition, so I'd expect the cohort criteria to fall within it.
