    Obviously the monkeys are too close to human - they have the same psychosomatic problems, they only think they have a problem with the virus. We really should tell the labworkers not to talk to the animals, and maybe the great British psychiatric/psychosomatic researchers can learn how to treat monkeys too....

    I doubt if it is based on something very new. It is known that XMRV can be found in semen, and WPI also found infectious XMRV in the plasma.
