    question?

    What gene mutation are they talking about for CFIDS patients that is shared with prostate cancer patients? They said it was a gene that functioned to fight off viral infections... If this is known, can't there be a test to show risk for getting CFIDS...?

    Rnase -l gene maybe

    (but this was not shown in all prostate cancer xmrv+ patients in later research I think)

    PWCFS are showing Rnase-l abnormalities but not sure if anyone is testing them for a specific gene mutation. The test I had was for Rnase-l activity

    Can't be biomarker, others have the abnormality also.

    As the prostate cancer study shows.
