    I had to lookup the term "paywall"!

    For those not "in the know" like me, a pay wall (or paywall) blocks access to a webpage with a window requiring payment. Web sites that use them include some owned by periodical publications (from Wikipedia).

    From what I read, this did not sound good. Did you interpret it the same way I did? ~ JT

    Cort,

    I don't think this is a "paper'... just comments on a blog that is behind a "paywall". CBS will need to clarify for us.

    JT, Vincent Racaniello calls it a review article:

    Then he cites the article by name at the end. It is listed in my college library database, but I can only get a copy if I special order it.

    Robert H. Silverman, Carvell Nguyen, Christopher J. Weight & Eric A. Klein. The human retrovirus XMRV in prostate cancer and chronic fatigue syndrome. Nature Reviews Urology doi: 10.1038/nrurol.2010.77.

    Nothing new

    I don't think that it tells us anything more than we already knew .......... a useful summary though.

    I am going in to work today and I have access to most of these journals. I'll check into the article referenced and post if possible. ~ JT

    While at work, I found that the article was epublished prior to the print publication. The only thing I could access was the abstract. I thought I had posted it but maybe I posted it on another thread?? :confused:

    I will check back to see when it is available online... it appears I will have access eventually. :(

    Never as soon as I would like! ~ JT
