Hi Just some days ago, i came across some information that Dr. Bieger in Munich (Mnchen), Germany is offering a test for XMRV. I was surprised, because i thought that so far there is no such test available in Europe. Here's the link to the website of his practice http://dr-bieger.de/ Munich is not sooo far away from where i live (near Zurich, Switzerland) but i have no experience with Dr. Bieger and didn't know about him before i found this. I have emailed him and asked some questions about this test. He replied that the cost is around 200 Euros and it's done in cooperation with the University of Heidelberg, after some months of cooperation with them. He also said that i (and so probably everyone else, i guess) would not have to come to Munich to take the test. The blood could be sent to him, but it would have to reach him in less than 1 day. This shouldn't be a problem. I also asked about his thoughts about the reliability of this test and if he could provide an approximative percentage of positive results, but he didn't answer to that. I have to say though that he probably answered my email via his mobile phone because he is on holiday now and will be back on the 2nd of July. He said that he will be able to answer further questions then. So the reason he didn't answer all of my questions might be that it was too inconvenient to type a long answer on his mobile and that he just wanted to enjoy his holiday, which i can understand :tongue: So what i would like to know (besides letting people know about this possibility) is this: Does anybody have experience with Dr. Bieger and/or this test? Me, i think i will take the test, if my health insurance pays for it. But to be honest, i'm not very, very confident about it's reliability. I have to be a little bit careful here (and i advise everybody to be the same), because in Germany the jurisdiction about posts on internet forums commenting on products, brands, persons etc. is very strict and i don't want to get mail by an attorney. The reason for my opinion is that so far most studies have failed to find XMRV, especially in Europe. And this test (as the one offered by VIP Dx) is not approved yet. So even if i took it, i would not let a negative result impress me too much. As far as i know the VIP Dx test should be available in Europe soon too, but if such a test is covered by my insurance, then i don't want to wait.
