I thought I saw something about this on PR somewhere before - but now I can't find it.
Thanks for posting.
Hope we have some Norwegian spies who will summarize things - perhaps in English

For me, this is the most important:
15:15 - 16:15 Dr. Judy Mikovits: “XMRV and other MLV’s in ME/CFS: Latest update on testing, results, treatments and research”

New or old treatments is that we all need.

Wow... Dr. Blomberg and Dr. Mikovits in the same seminar. That's very interesting. He's the guy who presented at the 1st Int'l XMRV workshop and could not find XMRV in Sweden, right? I hope they talk a lot. Would be great if she could tell him how to find it and he does new tests.

It will be interesting to hear what Judy Mikovits says about testing, results, treatments and results. Can't wait.

I found a couple of interesting things in these notes. Especially of importance to those of us who have used artesunate (and probably that whole class of artemesia) products. This one is from the second link posted.

"What do you think of artesunate? It has a wide range of antiviral, so it can take a lot of co-infections and has been used by HIV. Mikovits also says that after the use of artesunate is more difficult to find XMRV. "

Interesting. I took artemesia years ago. I'd hate to have trouble testing postitive for XMRV because I took it. Is it just taking it right before you get tested. Does anyone know?

I tried an artesunate from Hong Kong per Dr. Cheney's advice. That was about two years ago. Even the smallest amount gave sharp gut pain. Perhaps it was the particular source. Alternatively, I purchased iherb's artemesia and swished it it the mouth a few times a week. I stopped after no perceived benefit (who knows with us).

I'd use artesunate as folks on PR have recently suggested, if I were able.
