Cooperative Diagnostics lab is sharing their CFS blood samples with the CDC. I don't know if this sharing was for this study or another study that will come out much later.
Rrrr,

When you say blood samples, do you mean the drops of blood they collected from CFS patients for their commercial XMRV test, now withdrawn?

Could they be holding off due to conflicting findings from the retrovirology group and later discovering in the blood safety study?

I am guessing it is the results from the big CDC study... Dr. Katz is giving a presentation on the 11th and he is involved. Why have a teleconference if there is nothing to report but a negative study.

http://www.ascp.org/LongDescriptions/Teleconferences/TH0037X.aspx

Following the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

•Identify the taxonomic relationships of XMRV
•Recognize the disease associations that are being proposed for XMRV
•Justify the emerging interest in XMRV in transfusion medicine
•Evaluate current research initiatives

Co-Operative test doesn't work. Are the CDC crazy using their data?

This will backfire as peeps are XMRV- by Co-operative and XMRV+ by VIpdx

Sorry, but could someone point me to a link where Cort's has posted this on his XMRV buzz page or where it was announced the CDC study has been delayed for a week? Thanks.

I just pushed over a bum in the street and stole his paper bag in order to do some breathing exercises. Unfortunately the bag was concealing a rather rancid bottle of cheap scotch and the fumes from the bag have blown me away.

I have now passed out!

Bob, pass the bag man... whooo... far out....

*Bob passes bag to someone who needs it more right now*

When you gain consciousness again flex, could you pass it round please?


I visited a friend the other day (yes, I have one or two who stuck by me) who was painting his flat...

I almost passed out after half an hour from the fumes... and he hadn't even noticed them!

I had to leave.
