The Science looks solid Well, the bad news is that this study is exactly what you would want in a replication study. Every i was dotted and t was crossed. It was perfectly designed and well thought out, and executed. They didn't find XMRV associated with any of the CFS patients that they studied. (Course maybe they should be studying ME patients, (big grins) So now we wait and see if the Canadian study works out since it would use a very specific definition. The studies really should be coming in pretty quick in the next four weeks. This does explain why the IC people were so "sure" about studies that were coming out that would back them up. Cause I don't think this study can be faulted. On the other side of the coin there are obviously studies out there that go the other way according to Dr. Mikovitz. Hence both sides saying that they know of studies that will back up their research. So now we wait to see a positive study. If they don't hurry up though I'm going to OD on 'scetti! I would like to say this about this study. It was really professional. Unlike the snarky comments and press conferences of the IC study with all the chest pounding and grand standing this was scientist being good scientist. Cautious and careful. It's nice. For us we are just going to have to take our lumps and solider on like Koan says. So hang in their everybody.
