Nature puts out story with headline "Chronic fatigue findings were held back" and says that the PNAS reviewers of Alter paper are asking for the additional studies before it will publish the paper. If true this is big...... additional studies will be funded now for sure.... This is becoming too hot for any under the rug type sweep..... http://www.nature.com/news/2010/100702/full/news.2010.332.html?s=news_rss "Monroe (Stephen Monroe, director of the CDC's Division of High-Consequence Pathogens and Pathology) called the delay a "strategic pause", initiated after CDC officials learned of a contradictory study by the NIH and FDA team, reported at a meeting by NIH researcher Harvey Alter. Although a PNAS spokeswoman reportedly told The Wall Street Journal that the study had been accepted for publication, press officers at PNAS refused to comment on the matter today. One scientist familiar with the issue said that the journal's editor-in-chief, cell biologist Randy Schekman of the University of California, Berkeley, sent the paper out for further review after government agencies requested the publication delay. That review came back with requests for additional studies, the scientist says."
