ME/CFS that the concept of XMRV actually causing the illness almost doesn't
enter their consciousness. Dr. Reeves, head of the CDC project on CFS has
made only one comment to my knowledge, that he "doubted" this would turn out.
What a comment. Why not "Interesting." or "we will see."
Hillary Johnson made some interesting observations. First, "Why wasn't
everyone demanding dozens of replicative tests on the prostate cancer
findings?" Yet when CFS is implicated we will need twenty studies which replicate
the first. And if some poor studies do not find XMRV, they will be given
preferential weight to studies that actually find it.
