question?

What gene mutation are they talking about for CFIDS patients that is shared with prostate cancer patients? They said it was a gene that functioned to fight off viral infections... If this is known, can't there be a test to show risk for getting CFIDS...?

Rnase -l gene maybe

(but this was not shown in all prostate cancer xmrv+ patients in later research I think)

PWCFS are showing Rnase-l abnormalities but not sure if anyone is testing them for a specific gene mutation. The test I had was for Rnase-l activity
