    "Yet, Lombardi et al and Lo et al did not use this cell line, the labs involved have never worked with mice, and mouse contamination has been rigorously ruled out in their samples, both by the authors and the CDC."

    Thanks for this. This was a question I had on another thread. This is a great explanation for "the other side" (the one not presented at the CROI conference).

    I still have one question: On another CFS forum, a person made a claim that the PCR used by Whitmore Peterson were a brand and type that were known to be contaminated. Does anyone have proof as to whether this is true or not?
