If you look at the VIP culture test, and the VIP PCR test, some people tested negative. This is expected, because some people in the paper were positive on some tests and negative on others. However, we really need to know (or at least are curious about!) which individuals are negative on *both* tests. And that is something that cant be determined from the polls we have on this forum now. (Those who are positive on either test, we assume, are XMRV+.) We need a new poll, I think, that separates people out by severity, and separate them out by whether they used VIP or Cooperative Diagnositics, but it should indicate whether or not someone is positive or negative *in general* -- that is, whether or not they got *any* positive assay.
