I have a couple questions and comments. Goff kept refering to a retrovirus he's been studying at the end of the talk....sounds like Maloni??? Does anyone know about this one??? I hadnt heard of it.
Also, I find the monkey experiment SO fascinating. Who did this study and when? I find it interesting that he said there were no signs of disease.....like us, we all look so good, right? Well, did they take blood from the monkeys and study killer cells, cytokines, etc. That would be good if they did. Did the monkeys act lazy, slept alot, unhappy? That would be CFS!! (Being alittle flipant here). I would like to know where more information is on that study. If someone posted it prior, just direct me. Thanks
Also, after pushing myself through the HERV dialogue, I found it interesting that a retrovirus can recombine with an endogenous one. Maybe Kurt is sortof right...maybe the XMRV has to combine with a particular endogenous retrovirus in our genome....boy Im getting better with this terminology
And thanks for the transcribers! Great job!
