    Although he doesn't come right out and say it, this is probably about XMRV.

    Interesting! Do you know when he will elaborate on his findings and does he have a website or other published studies. He seems to be a doc on the right track. Isnt it amazing how things seem to move forward when a relative of a doc gets cfs, we need more relatives of docs or docs to get cfs and a few researchers, then they have a real stake in this.

    cheers!!!

    He is looking for markers involved in the innate anti-viral defences, including phosphorylated PKR and cleaved PKR. This is the last third of the show. I have not looked into this further at this time. Bye, Alex

    Yes, what is exciting is that he is not going over the same tired old cytokine bio-marker studies. This is a new approach which is linked to a ridgy-didge (oz) possible cure, based around breaking down the replication cycle of retroviruses. Currently the main application is for HIV, but Tate seems confident it will do the trick for whatever viruses are involved in cfs. His daughter has me/cfs and he is every bit as passionate (also a genius) as the Whittemores in pursuing a cure. You can hear the sincerity in his voice.

    His work will probably prove to be more pivotal then even the WPI's.
