    I thought it was a very hopeful article. XMRV seems more like a "real" virus again, not a rumor virus or contamination.
    I think it's highly likely that much of the damage is caused by our immune systems and not the virus itself. The question is: does XMRV cause misschief of its own as well? If not, we need ways to put the immune system down. Or we need to eliminate the virus, but that may be even harder.
