John Coffin’s XMRV conclusions “clearly wrong,” IMEA states

A news release published August 3 by the International ME Association (IMEA) claims new research points to such great sequence diversity in XMRV variants that John Coffin’s paper suggesting XMRV resulted from lab contaminants is “clearly wrong.” And that the paper – “Recombinant Origin of the Retrovirus XMRV” (Paprotka et al., May 2011) – “needs investigating as glaring flaws in methodology have already been revealed.”
