    Hi guys,

    I've just got my XMRV culture test back, and am having trouble interpreting the results. I presume the test is negative, but can anyone clarify this? The blank box by abnormal is confusing me.. :S
    Also, did anyone else reading this get the same results as me?

    Please see the attachment of my results :worried:

    Thanks guys,

    jake

    It might be confusing if these are the only results you have had back from VIPDX. If there is a 'normal' result, it is placed in the normal column. If you have an abnormal result, it is placed in the abnormal column.

    Your case is indeed negative.

    It will be interesting to see whether the 50+ percent of us who tested negative on the culture test will test positive on the serology test.

    Andrew,

    thanks for the help with the results. Will be very interesting to see about the serology.
