Hi guys, I want to float this idea of writing a letter to the MEA asking them to fund a study on the best methods of finding XMRV. This would be completely separate from ME/CFS and wholly focused on the retrovirus with retrovirologists leading the study and no one in the ME arena involved. I know the HHS in the US is working on standardised testing so it might not be worth our time but if we had a study in the UK that said what variables improved or damaged chances of finding XMRV we might be able to make some headway against negative studies in both prostate cancer and ME/CFS. Looking at other reseviours such as tissue might be an interesting avenue that perhaps they are not persuing in the US. We're running before we can walk. Does anyone else think this is a good idea?
