Human Gamma Retrovirus Test Now Available
VIP Dx is pleased to announce the availability, beginning Monday, August 23, 2010, of the WPI licensed serology test to detect antibodies to Human Gamma Retroviruses that include XMRV and its variants human MLV-related viruses.
I smell something here... XMRV is a HGRV too, so, oh, look, the CDC and the other zero/zeroer zeroes were looking for XMRV and not another HGRV, "the CFS-HGRV", and so their studies were correct.From the VIP Dx website:
Seems someone has got it wrong. WPI is saying XMRV is one of the viruses under the HGRV umbrella. Implying the name will not be replaced.
Keep in mind that many people on this forum alone tested negative yet were/are (in some cases) just as severely disabled as those who tested positive. This fact is ignored repeatedly...
LOL. :Retro smile:
Oh my lord. Otis bite your tongue. Hagrid?????
Third reaction: HE SAID "THE ILLNESS CAUSED BY THIS INFECTION."
not "the illness strongly associated with the presence of this retrovirus but causation not proven" ---
"THE ILLNESS CAUSED BY THIS INFECTION"
I'm sorry, I don't know who Dr. Burrascano is. Is he a wholly reliable source??
