Cleveland Clinic on the Study Findings

What about the recent study by German researchers in the journal Retrovirology that found no link between XMRV and prostate cancer?

It is not atypical of science for different groups to get different results. There could be methodological differences. I believe our methods were more sensitive. They may have missed it. Or it could be a different strain. Another interpretation is that the virus is more prevalent in the United States than in Germany.

With respect, XMRV was found in the London patients, London is not in America. ;)
