Primate Research Finds XMRV Caused Lasting but Hard to Detect Infection

The Wall Street Journal’s chronic fatigue syndrome tracker, Amy Dockser Marcus, reported Feb 17 on new XMRV research published Feb 16 in the Journal of Virology (“Infection, viral dissemination and antibody reponses of Rhesus macaques exposed to the human gammaretrovirus,” by Onlamoon N, et al.)

As Dockser Marcus reports in her neat summary (see “XMRV: Study Shows Virus Can Cause ‘Persistent Infection’ in Monkeys”), this research involving intravenously infected macaque monkeys found that though the early signs of infection in the animals’ blood* had disappeared fairly quickly, autopsies later found XMRV infected cells in their GI tract lining, prostate, lungs, and spleen. She also reports on the authors' views regarding the implications, issues raised, and their plans for follow-up research.

As their article abstract concludes: "Our findings establish a nonhuman primate model to study XMRV replication/dissemination, transmission, pathogenesis, immune responses, and potential future therapies."

    XMRV WILL PROVE TO BE A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME AND WE WILL ALL LOOSE VITAL TIME TO THIS THEORY…THERE IS NOW TO MUCH WORK PROVEN ON CIGUETERA EPITOPE TOXIN AND NOW THE LINK TO LOW LEVEL RADIATION…WITH REGARDS TO CIGUETERA THE CDC AND NIH HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THIS SINCE 2003 AND HAVE DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO RECTIFY THIS SITUATION AND THE BOTTOM LINE IS IT HAS ALREADY GONE INTO THE WORLD FOOD CHAINS AND WATER SYSTEMS…GAIL KANSKY’S TEAM DESERVES DONATIONS TO CONTINUE THIS VITAL LINK TO CFIDS AND AUTO-IMMUNE DISEASES…THE FACT THAT THIS WORK HAS ALREADY BEEN REPLICATED SHOULD BE RINGING MAJOR ALARM BELLS ACROSS THE MEDICAL WORLD AND STILL TO THIS DAY THEY ALL HAVE BEEN DRAGGING THEIR ASSES AND THE MEMORIAL LIST CONTINUES TO GROW…LET THE LAWSUITS COMMENCE AND SUE FOR DAMAGES IN WORLD COURTS…XMRV IS A TOTAL WASTE OF EVERYONES TIME…ALSO REMEMBER THIS AND IT IS FACT ‘AZT CAUSES AIDS NOT HIV’…THE LAST THING NOW ALL OF US WANT IS A FUTURE PATIENT WHO TAKES THESE COCKTAIL TOXIC DRUGS IS FOR THEIR PHYSICIAN TO THEN TELL THEM THEY DO NOT HAVE CFS BUT NOW HAVE AIDS…LAST, ‘GcMAF’ SHOULD BE IMMEDIATELY PUT IN OPEN WORLD TRIALS FOR CFS AS A COMPASSION MEDICINE TO SEE IF IT CORRECTS IMMUNE DYSFUNCTION IN CFIDS AND THERE SHOULD WOULD NO WAIT WHATSOEVER TO DECADES OF SUFFERING AND ALL GOVERNMENTS SHOULD FOOT THE COMPLETE COSTS FOR THESE TRIALS…NOT NEXT YEAR ‘NOW’IS THE TIME FOR THEM TO GET OF THEIR USELESS ASSES AND DO SOMETHING BECAUSE OF THEIR COMPLETE NEGLECT…IF THEY THINK THAT ONCE THIS ILLNESS IS SOLVED AND TREATED THE LAWSUITS WILL NOT COME THEY ALL NEED THEIR HEADS EXAMINED BY PHYCO-BABBLERS… SINCERELY AIDAN WALSH SOUTHAMPTON, U.K.

    OF COURSE THE MONKEYS ARE ALL SICK…WOULDN’T YOU BE IF YOU WERE INFECTED WITH CIGUETERA EPITOPE TOXIN AND LOW LEVELS OF RADIATION…SUPPORT GAIL KANSKY AND THE WORLD CLASS SCIENTISTS SHE FUNDS 100% OF YOUR DONATIONS…REMEMBER THIS, THEY HAVE NO SALARIES AND DEAL WITH SCIENTISTS WHO CAN GET OUT OF THEIR BEDS AND DO NOT COME ACROSS AS SOME KIND OF CHARLATANS WHO TELL PEOPLE THEY ARE WORLD CLASS RESEARCHERS WHO ACTUALLY HAVE THE ILLNESS…SINCERELY, AIDAN WALSH SOUTHAMPTON, U.K.
