    Here is an interesting story. Man received kidney transplant from a woman who died. She was later found to have had uterine cancer. Doctors thought there was only a slight risk to the recipient. They were wrong.

    Those responsible for the transplant process need to be fully aware of the risks with regards to CFS and XMRV.
