HOLD THE PRESSES - HHS Reportedly Asks How CDC Found No XMRV in CFS Samples While FDA & NIH Did

  [ 95 votes ]   [ 3 Comments ]
www.ProHealth.com • June 30, 2010


As reported today in an excellent article by WallStreetJournal.com health writer Amy Dockser Marcus (“Chronic Fatigue [Syndrome] Link to Virus Disputed”), an FDA and NIH research paper reporting the presence of XMRV in CFS patients' blood, in line with the October 2009 paper in Science, has been put on hold at the behest of the US Department of Health & Human Services (HHS).

Dockser Marcus learned through sources that the paper had been accepted for publication by the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS). The reported reason for the hold: HHS consternation regarding a paper by the CDC, also now on hold, that had been accepted for publication by the journal Retrovirology. The CDC paper apparently stated that the CDC found no XMRV in the blood of CFS patients.

All in the interest of ensuring the accuracy of US Govt. publications – and finding some explanation for the seeming day and night discrepancy.

Tell our elected officials to direct the DHHS to allow the NIH and FDA to publish their papers. Preventing these papers from being published diminishes the trust of CFS Patient groups in the CDC and its willingness to deal honestly with this disease. http://healthcare.change.org/petitions/view/xmrv_allow_science_to_progress

CDC's Findings Suspect

We all know how convoluted the CDC's patient database is; does anyone remember where their patients came from? What definition they used? If the Empirical Definition was used, finally the DHHS may verify the truth: it is a sham, a criminal negligence once again...so, what's new? Should be an exciting summer!

This is the triumph of petty agency politics over science. It is a sad day for scientists and a sadder day for people who suffer with ME/CFS. Our government (CDC) has kept us sick for 20 years. Are they trying for another 20 years?
