    Okay then we can list them by name, since they are not one and the same:
    CAV-Freitas inside mitochondriae
    XMRV-silverman gammaretrovirus in white blood cells
    JHK-Grossman retrovirus inside HHV-6A
    (HHV-6A can be inside the brain , without any signs in blood or lumbar puncture..)
    XMR-Grossman is this the JHK virus? or yet another one?http://forums.aboutmecfs.org/showpost.php?p=17011&postcount=95

    I posted this in the other thread, but the only way to solve this problem is for them to test both sets of samples using both methods and see what turns up.

    ETA: Nora N, I just noticed that you posted almost the same thing I did but you did a better job I think. You beat me to it by 24 min. lol

    Here's mine:

    So far the names of infectious human retroviruses found in CFS are:

    CAV - De Freitas et al. 1991
    JHK - Grossberg et al. 2001
    XMRV - Mikovits et al. 2009


    Hi All,

    I just posted about the WPI announcement here:

    http://forums.aboutmecfs.org/showthread.php?t=1217

    The gist of it to me is we now have at least 2 infectious human retroviruses in patients with CFS.

    CAV was found in our mitochondria and XMRV may be the same as Grossberg's JHK retovirus found imbedded in HHV-6, although I don't think they said that so that would lead me to think there are possibly at least 3 infectious human retroviruses in patients with CFS.

    However JerryH here on this forum says:
    JerryH also says:

    So it looks like Grossberg discovered XMRV first. Also, is Grossberg saying here that JHK is XMRV? Do you have the link for that JerryH?
