    This is the Peterson/Levy study. It's indeed negative and will be published in Science. This study is probably one of the reasons that prompted the editors to contact WPI and ask them to retract their study.

    Also everybody on antiretrovirals should stop taking them :angel:

    Look at the article Peterson did end up supplying the patients. He apparently asked Levy to do the study but Dr. Kogelnik - who is associated with Dr. Montoya at Stanford did.

    So Levy and others have shown that the XMRV in Lombardi et al came from reagents or cell lines. Funny, I didn't see that proven in this or any other study. More overreaching with the headline and repeated statements that "XMRV is not the cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome." What is going on here?
