Highlights for me:

Many experts and researchers argue that the CDCs strategy leads to overdiagnosis because it fails to fully distinguish the disease from psychiatric disorders like depression.
Judy A. Mikovits, the senior author of the Science paper, said she hoped to organize clinical trials of anti-retrovirals by the end of the year, noting that they could lead to answers about whether a retrovirus causes the disease as well as to effective treatments.
I think it settles the issue of whether the initial report was real or not, said K. Kimberly McCleary, president of the CFIDS Association of America, the leading organization for people with chronic fatigue syndrome.
