    havent they tried this on 4 leukemia patients already? i read that they altered the stem cells in 2 other ways as well, because HIV would probably start using another receptor to get into the cells. they only transplanted a small amount of cells because of safety concerns, but the cells survived. i cannot find the article :-/

    my understanding is that they had hoped the altered cells would be selected for and replace the other ones but they did not......but that was an older article i read.

    wonder if they will be able to get this stupid XMRV out of my body in my lifetime!

    maybe we should start saving our pennies now hehe
