The DHHS has a really brilliant strategy, I think, they withhold all of the publications for as long as they can and there are dozens of them. That buys them as much time as they can milk. Unfortunately the CFS patient group is pretty unforgiving on the time issue. (grins) THEN they let all the papers publish one right after another, an avalanche as it were. This actually buys them more time because the patients, patient advocacy groups, media and general public will have to wade through the subsequent mess! By the time the dust settles figure three to six months they are set up to deal with the problems.
Still I think treating this will be quicker than for any other retrovirus. Anti-virals, antiretrovirals, NK boosters like Ampligen (which will finally have a disease, grins) androgen reduction and good support supplements like Co-Q10 and magnesium all of these are available now without having to jump through hoops and get approval. (with the exception of Ampligen) Three years to the clinic is my Kresken prediction. (snort, arf, woof)
