DR. MIKOVITS WILL ANSWER QUESTIONS
Attendees at the event in Santa Barbara will be able to question Dr. Mikovits directly about XMRV research progress, findings, testing, and plans. Additionally she will answer selected questions submitted online in advance, and is incorporating answers to many of these in her presentation.
As director of research at the Whittemore-Peterson Institute in Reno, Nevada, Judy Mikovits gained worldwide attention in October with publication of a paper in the journal Science, reporting “Detection of an Infectious Retrovirus, XMRV, in Blood Cells of Patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.” To review the article and subsequent media coverage, see “In The News” at WPInstitute.org.
XMRV Research Continues, Worldwide
Dr. Mikovits’ team at Whittemore-Peterson, and collaborating researchers around the globe, are working intensively on next steps in the research – which relates to ME/CFS, fibromyalgia and other neuroimmune disorders, certain cancers, and much more.
Regarding controversy over a recent UK-based research study claiming to find no XMRV in patient samples…
Dr. Mikovits states vigorously, “You can’t claim to replicate a study if you don’t do a single thing that we did in our study… Our goal has always been to translate our research into diagnostics and therapeutics for patients… We are still trying to develop drugs to treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. That was our goal, and nothing has changed.”
We hope that you will be able to participate in this historic event with Dr. Mikovits and WPI Founder Annette Whittemore, and look forward to joining you there on January 22.
