I thought it might be helpful to make a separate list of these... If anyone has any extra info, then please post on this thread. XMRV in CFS Patients unpublished positive studies abstracts & reports Detection of infectious XMRV in the peripheral blood of children M A Pfost et al. (WPI) Looking for XMRV in families and testing: adults with ME, FM, Lymme disease; Parents of children with neuroimmune disease; children with ASD; children with Niemann-Pick; and healthy children with sibling who have neuroimmune disease.

Kimberly McCleary with Steven H. Kleinman, BSc, MD, and Suzanne D. Vernon, PhD. Dr. Hansons study tested samples obtained by David S. Bell from 20 CFS patients, 10 of whom reported having recovered but still demonstrated lower physical activity levels than the 10 healthy control subjects as measured by seven instruments employed by Dr. Bell. Of these 20 CFS patients, 11 (55%) were positive; 8 (80%) of the 10 patients currently meeting Fukuda criteria and 3 (30%) of the individuals who had recovered tested positive, compared to 1 (10%) of the 10 healthy controls. The gag sequences found by Dr. Hanson were more similar to those reported by Lo et al., than to the gag sequences for XMRV, although all are part of the same gammaretrovirus family. Her group is working to sequence the env sequence and the entire virus genome(s) now that they have external funding support from NIH. http://www.cfids.org/xmrv/wrkshp-report.pdf Kenny De Meirlier Blinded study, using the VIPdx to test for XMRV Initial reported results = XMRV detected in 57% of 84 CFS patients, and in 14% of 50 healthy donors. http://www.investinme.org/IiME Conf...onal ME Conference 2011 Conference Report.htm Wilfried Bieger (Germany) Reported positive study, to be published sometime in 2011.

The data will be used to help formulate a gold standard for determining positive and negative results. http://www.phillyburbs.com/blogs/wo...b-7981-56f2-b829-af35a545728e.html?mode=print XMRV in Prostate Cancer - unpublished positive studies - abstracts & reports A Preliminary Screening Of Xenotropic Murine Leukemia Virus-Related Virus In Japanese Prostate Cancer Patients Tsukasa Igawa, Yoshinao Kubo, Katsura Kakoki, Naoki Yamamoto, Hideki Sakai April 2011 The Journal of Urology (Abstract presented at the American Urological Association meeting) http://www.jurology.com/article/S0022-5347(11)01208-0/fulltext (MLV sequences were detected in four out of sixty one patients (6.7%)) Xenotropic Murine Leukemia Virus Related Virus (Xmrv) Is Present In Malignant Prostate Tissue But Does Not Affect Pathological Or Clinical Outcome Chad Ritch, Ruslan Korets, Mireia Castillo-Martin, Josep Domingo-Domenech, Mitchell Benson, Carlos Cordon-Cardo April 2011 The Journal of Urology (Abstract presented at the American Urological Association meeting) http://www.jurology.com/article/S002...618-1/fulltext Immunofluorescence: XMRV detected in 33/65 (51%) of malignant samples, and in only 5/42 benign samples (12%).
