New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines

    Hi, I agree with heapsreal about the Bond study. However, it is probably short sighted of them because their research could probably tell us a lot about pathophysiology even if XMRV is the cause. We need all the info we can get. Bye, Alex

    They also mentioned that Eka, who is one of the scientists, is also studying our different cytokines and these results we dont get until the end of the study, not like the nk function test. 6 months left then the 18month study is finished. Dont know when we will see all the results but this type of nk function test is suppose to be used as a diagnoses of cfs as well. So if this was going to be a test for cfs, i think its down the gurggler if xmrv/mlv's are the cause as testing for the retro viruses will be the cfs test and nk test will be of know use in diagnoses of cfs, but i think will still be of use as improving nk function picked up through testing can tell us if treatment is working.

    cheers!!!
