Hello everybody, I'm just throwing up a ball here, but when I listened to yesterday's webinar and heard people say that finding cohorts with well-defined patients was a problem, and that there was need of multi-city, multi-continent research for XMRV, I thought of Phoenix Rising. Maybe we could find a way to create a database here with people who are, under their own conditions ofcourse, willing to participate in research programmes. Ofcourse we would have to think about a way to deal with privacy-issues, and there are other practical issues to consider before organising this. On the other hand: we are a multi-city and multi-continent community and most of us here probably have a pretty good idea if they would meet the Canadian Consensus Criteria, or if they 'only' meet the Fukuda Criteria (no disrespect in any way intended). Couldn't that be very useful to the scientific community trying to solve this puzzle? Or is my plan incredibly naive because of things i cannot oversee right now? Tell me what you think!
