    bugger... i found it cited in 2 other publications, which for me is enough for now. i went ahead and published it naming the researchers as a source.
    will try to set up the translation over the weekend to make it more widely available :D

    THanks ukxmrv,

    WPI has added the following statement to their homepage:

    It links to the abstract here: http://www.diagnosesupport.com/health/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=305:the-prevalence-of-xenotropic-murine-leukemia-virus-related-virus-in&catid=132:xmrv-research&Itemid=8

    The abstract is dated 12/31/2009, and I think it was already posted above, but the WPI link is new.

    Hi Lesley,

    Thanks for letting us know. It looks like they finally published this study.

    It is good news because WPI's methods have been successfully replicated. We had results before but not the methodology. It sounds like it passed the test... And customs as well, at least in Japan.

    This is still just an abstract on a website, not a full paper in a peer-reviewed journal. What I found interesting was WPI's statement that the Japanese used their methods.

    ETA - It looks like Carla is the one who posted it. See post #23 above.

    HTLV is certainly related to lymphoma and leukemia. I wonder if HTLV likes some company and invited XMRV???
