70 Retrovirology specialists meet on national retrovirus registry (AND XMRV) in Spain Very cool news from Spain. Does your country have a national retrovirus registry? Can we help replicate this model in other countries? "XX Meeting of the Spanish group for the study of HIV-2 and HTLV" at http://translate.google.ca/translat...arch?q=xmrv&hl=en&lr=&tbo=p&num=100&tbs=qdr:d It appears to have happened 3 days ago, December 16th, in Spain at the Hospital Carlos III in Madrid. "Hospital Carlos III of Madrid will host the Twentieth Meeting of the Spanish group for the study of HIV-2 and HTLV. Some 70 specialists meet to share current data from the national registry of cases of infection with these retroviruses, other than classic AIDS virus. In this new edition, in addition to HIV-2 subtypes and HTLV 1 and 2, will focus a presentation by Dr. Vicente Soriano to the latest information and recorded cases of the new retrovirus XMRV, "uncovered" in October in the journal Science." The meeting program is here: http://translate.google.ca/translat...arch?q=xmrv&hl=en&lr=&tbo=p&num=100&tbs=qdr:d It lists all the presenters - what I imagine might be a "Who's Who" list of the prominent retrovirologists in Spain. This is awesome. First 75 retrovirologists convene @ the Cleveland Clinic. Then 70 retrovirus specialists convene in Spain. And Spain has a national registry for retroviral infections other than HIV?! I wonder if these specialists/retrovirologists can get Spanish ME/CFS patients on the registry asap? This might be a great example to share within your own country, help speed up XMRV action. @Sergio & others, are you able to tell us more? OK fellow Canucks, we need to get similar action happening in Canada!
