BREAKING NEWS - WPI Response to Second UK Article

  [ 8 votes ]   [ 2 Comments ]
www.ProHealth.com • February 18, 2010


For the thousands who have been awaiting Whittemore Peterson Institute's comments on the second UK research paper reporting failure to find evidence of XMRV in samples from ME/CFS patients: The WPI website has posted a formal response (see In The News).

Other new items posted Feb 18 point to:

• An article in ScienceDaily explaining in less technical terms "a recent study of XMRV that sheds light on the cancer causing properties of retroviruses and suggests a pathway to future vaccine development."

• The free online Q&A on XMRV and CFS that Drs. Mikovits and Cheney hosted Saturday, Feb 20. A video record of the event should be posted soon at www.cheneyresearch.com.

I got confuse!

I have some questions! 1)Is the US CFS similar to the ME in UK? 2) if it is the same illness, why the two researcher teams have different conclusions about the XMRV retrovirus? 3) do you know some one with CFS that infected is husband or whife via sex activity? I have officially CFS since 2001 and I never had, from my doctors and specialists, the statement that cfs is trasmissible via sex activity. I am concern because three year ago I found the love of my life and I don't want to create her problem. Thank you in advance for your answears. M.

sex tranfer?

It is a difficult question this. My wife an I both have cfs, as well as our daughter and our grandson. I got cfs, by slow onset in 1986 after a blood transfusion. (Don't know for sure if it was the transfusion and it wasn't diagnosed as cfs). For 5 years I suffered unusual fatigue, poor sleep and diarrhea and had difficulty working as a consultant but persevered. In 1992 I dropped to part time work, no one seemed to know what was wrong with me but as a medical consultant I kept it mostly to myself. (wrong I know). In 1995 I saw a rheumatologist because, by this time I was suffering widespread pain and this caused me more problems than the other symptoms. I gave up work completely. I was diagnosed "reactive arthropathy" and possible mycobacterial infection. Treatment for this failed after 1 year and I was rediagnosed as having fms and or cfs. In 2000 my wife came down with "a flu like" illness and subsequently severe fatigue and was diagnosed cfs. At the same time our daughter who lives in another country was diagnosed with cfs and mcs. So what do you make of that? I suspect they both caught it from me but I do not know this. Apparently very few spouses get cfs but I know of no published statistics on this. Perhaps others can enlighten us.
