A Spanish CFS doctor said, few days ago, there are not any european XMRV positive.
I hope this changes after the XMRV meeting 7-9 september 2010.
Surely there will be some european studies from Sweden, Belgique,Spain,UK , all positives.
If you read the program of the meeting there are also some negatives studies.I desire the authors of this negative studies understand what they made wrong and not trying to defend his results.
