    When news about XMRV first came out from WPI, I suspected vaccines because of the widespread use of mice in biologics. This thread has been very informative. One thing I am concerned about is that certain human phenotypes (eg Rnase L) are more susceptible to this virus particular virus.

    Whenever I hear of studies saying that any foreign viruses found are considered harmless and not infectious. Just wonder not infectious to which human phenotypes... Depending on their sample population, they may never know... Until it hits the general population... I am really concerned right now because my daughter is due for her 5 year vaccinations next week. :(

    I do not know much about the Whitmore Peterson study. Could it be that they worked with mice or rats or cells or blood from mice or rats infected with a mouse leukemia virus and this contaminated their experiment? Has Whitmore Peterson explained that their testing procedures were not contaminated, and if so, does anyone know what explanation they gave? This site is so thorough I'm betting the info. is somewhere. I am just not sure where to look.

    Oh dear !!!
    You obviously have so much catching up to do.
    However, you're in the right place to learn.
    Suggest that you start right at the beginning of the XMRV buzz page.

    Pretty sure the WPI said the labs they used had never used mice.

    the WPI lab never had mice and there was an immune reaction to the virus in the blood - that would not happen from lab contamination. in other words, if you have virus from the lab that got into the blood sample, you aren't going to find antibodies to that virus in the blood!
