Dr. De Meirleir finds XMRV in ME/CFS samples from “all of Europe” (French News Bite)

  [ 23 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ] • September 3, 2010

Following is a Sep 3 post of the Co-Cure Listserv on behalf of “Kelly,” sharing an automated English translation of the original news release issued in French (to read that, click HERE). According to the release, Dr. Kenny De Meirleir will share the details at the 1st International XMRV Conference in Washington, DC on September 7 & 8 - news that should heighten interest in the webcasted conference finale on Sep 8.


Note: Notice of the following article was originally posted with a link to the article in French. For those who do not speak French, this is a rough translation per BabelFish. It should be noted that the research has apparently not yet been published in the peer-reviewed literature which is the gold standard.

“Researchers at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and Belgian society of biotechnology "R.E.D. Laboratories" managed to identify a new retrovirus among patients suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, announced the VUB Tuesday in an official statement.

“These results corroborate a recent American discovery. American researchers from the University of Nevada had discovered, in October 2009, that the majority of the patients suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome were carrying a new retrovirus XMRV. Before the  Belgian study, these American conclusions had already been confirmed by Harvard Medical School and National Institute of Health (NIH).

“The research undertaken under the direction of professor De Meirleir (VUB) constitutes an innovation because the virus was discovered among sick patients resulting from all of Europe. In addition, this immunological signature is comparable with that of a patient with AIDS.”
