WPI-Licensed Test for XMRV & Variants Now Available

  [ 21 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • August 23, 2010


VIP Dx (www.vipdx.com) is pleased to announce the availability, beginning Monday, August 23, 2010, of the WPI licensed serology test to detect antibodies to Human Gamma Retroviruses that include XMRV and its variants human MLV-related viruses.

Please contact customer service for more information at (775) 351-1890.

____

NOTE: The test kit may be ordered online as explained at www.vipdx.com/order. Submission of a blood sample for the tests themselves (PCR/culture test and/or serology test) incur a further charge and require a requisition signed by the patient's physician that provides a diagnosis code so that VIP Dx "may submit a proper statement of services and fees" that can be submitted to the patient's insurance company.

As we understand it, the serology (antibody) test may not produce a positive result if the body is not currently producing antibodies, while the PCR test would culture/grow the virus if it is present. Some say this is the current 'gold standard' test for XMRV. Reportedly the antibody test will report finding/not finding evidence of antibodies, but not the level - though Dr. Mikovits at the Whittemore Peterson Center has indicated they are working to develop a test that would.

WPI's net proceeds from licensing of the tests to VIP Dx (formerly RedLabs USA) will be donated to support ongoing research at the non-profit Whittemore Peterson Institute for Neuro Immune Disease.
