Science Publishes Mikovits & Ruscetti Response to Criticisms of Their Paper on XMRV & CFS

  [ 3 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • May 14, 2010


Drs. Judy Mikovits (Whittemore Peterson Institute) & Francis Ruscetti (National Cancer Institute) have responded in Science magazine to criticisms of their highly publicized paper on XMRV & CFS (“Detection of an infectious retrovirus, XMRV, in blood cells of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome,”, by Lombardi VD et al., published Oct 2009 in Science.)

The gist of their May 14 response (http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/328/5980/825-d) is an explanation of:

• “Why the criticisms of Sudlow et al., Lloyd et al., and van der Meer et al. regarding the selection of patients and controls in our study are unwarranted.”

• And how the work of these groups failed to replicate the WPI study “as neither the same PCR methodologies were used nor did these studies draw on the additional cell culture and immunological methods that we employed to observe XMRV nucleic acids and proteins” – though samples were offered.
