Where are they? Why have they not been released? I think we need to beat on everyone (HHS, NIH, FDA) to get those documents released. It is now 5 August - I would give it another week but if those documents are not released, and released without any CDC/government intrusion/group grope, then we start the very serious screaming. We must have those studies. We NEED those studies to prove that XMRV is real so that we get the attention and funding that we need. This can't leave the list for us. BEAT on the Federal orgs NOW. And in one more week, if those studies are not released then it is a declared WAR. I finally did get a standard email from OID about the FDA study ( I think it was, it was BS so I ignored it). But having the authors review their work sounds like the big lie to me and a play to keep those studies away from the public for as long as possible so that the government can start damage control - if it hasn't already. We know that the CDC has already moved into major damage control over XMRV, but the other federal health orgs may not have moved as quickly as CDC did and are still trying to figure out how to control the mess that is going to come when those studies are finally released. Perception management and all that... Keep emailing the Federal health orgs about those studies so they know we all are waiting and well aware. I also state to them that the studies should not have any interference from other organizations, especially the CDC. And yes, I tell the truth since, let's face it, the government knows the games being played - or at least those involved know the games being played by the major players. I want them to know that WE know the games and are watching and waiting and none too patient or amused that these studies were not released in a timely fashion and without government intrusion - read the CDC's very dirty hands. That would be you Bill - you vindictive, demented, old sociopath.
