Earlier this week, an FDA advisory panel recommended that the agency bar people who report a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome from donating blood amid concerns about a possible link with the virus XMRV.

But reliably testing potential blood donors or people with CFS for XMRV isnt yet possible.

Thats the conclusion from the latest phase of an ongoing study launched by the HHS Blood XMRV Scientific Working Group, which was set up last year after a paper in Science linked XMRV to CFS.....
