“World Class Virus Hunter" Picked to Direct Next XMRV Study - Per Wall Street Journal Report on Intl’ XMRV Workshop Day 1

  [ 12 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • September 8, 2010


Amy Dockser Marcus, the Wall Street Journal’s point woman on ME/CFS and XMRV news, is attending the 2-day 1st International XMRV Workshop at NIH headquarters near DC. Her Day-1 report centers on discussions of why some studies, and some branches of the NIH, have found evidence of retroviruses in ME/CFS patients and some have not.

As she reports, NIH director Francis Collins (who was slotted in to provide the opening remarks days before the workshop) announced that he has asked the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to direct an all-out collaborative study to clear up the confusion. And, says Dockser Marcus, NIAID director Anthony Fauci told her in an interview that the project will be headed by eminent Columbia University epidemiologist W Ian Lipkin – “a world class virus hunter.”

You can read her full report, with more detail on her interviews with both Fauci and Lipkin, at http://blogs.wsj.com/health/2010/09/08/world-class-virus-hunter-to-head-up-the-latest-xmrv-study/. (Be sure to review and add to the reader comments.) And to follow any further coverage she may offer of the XMRV Workshop Day 2, go to the WSJ Health Blog site (http://blogs.wsj.com/health

On behalf of all people with so-far ‘invisible’ illness, thank you, Amy!
