Excellent, thanks bullybeef. Can anyone access the entire thing?
The CFIDS Association have added this to facebbok.
Thanks for posting V99. Great info.
So what we are waiting for as patients is for XMRV to be proven to cause disease. It took 3 years to even get XMRV on the radar. (from 2006 to 2009) The WPI study showed that possibility and got researchers interested in the virus. Now someone needs to design a study that shows at least a tentative cause and effect. Because while the researchers may be interested the bureaucrats are holding the purse strings and without money the research will stall.
So what now . . .?
P.S. nice one V99
Dr. Coffin says the only way to prove X causes Y, or in this case XMRV causes disease (CFS) is to lob drugs at it and see what happens.
I think I got that right. In fact, Gerwyn said it, so it must be true.
Whady'a reckon George, cos I'm no scientist?
"Recent studies show that some existing antiretroviral drugs suppress XMRV infections and diagnostic assays are under development".
"Infection" implies in vivo.....misuse of words, or have I missed some studies on drug effectiveness for xmrv infection.?
And yes, one of the common and intended uses for a medication is diagnostics
Has anyone here seen the full text version of Dr Silverman's review yet?
(I wish it didn't cost so much to access a single article in these scientific journals; $32 for one article seems kind of over-the-top to me. It doesn't help when the info you're interested in is spread over umpty different journals.)
