Here's another one: Xenotropic/Ectropic Murine Leukemia Virus Testing
from http://www.millipore.com/publications.nsf/dda0cb48c91c0fb6852567430063b5d6/ced3d5c4cd56f3ab852571ea00776798/$FILE/SDS1703ENEU.pdf This document makes me wonder if labs like this might join the race to produce human XMRV testing too.

It was cited on the Italian site: Encephalomielete Mialgica & Patologie Ambientali @ http://empa.forumcommunity.net/?t=33531548
(Geez, ME in Italian sounds so lovely).

Haven't translated the blog there yet - anyone wanna take a look?

Of course, this test is only for rodents, not humans. The lab is not licensed for human testing, only animals. To be clear, I am posting this as a courtesy to other rodent owners here and not trying to sell anything.
I looked at Wiki for the definition of rodent (I am french after all, gotta make it clear for myself :D)

Rodent characterised by two continuously growing incisors in the upper and lower jaws which must be kept short by gnawing.[1][2]


Me thinks that we are all rodents. Carrots anyone?
