Wall Street Journal Reports FDA-NIH Verification of XMRV-CFS Link

On Wednesday, June 23, the Wall Street Journal Health Blog published an article by Amy Dockser Marcus titled Further evidence of an XMRV-Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Connection?”

There are many comments on the story, celebrating and thanking the WSJ for covering and verifying this important news, plus a few deeply felt requests to change the headline (which at first employed the demeaning name “chronic fatigue” instead of the current medical name in the US – “chronic fatigue syndrome.”)

The title has been revised – and better than that, patients have gained renewed hope that a truly scientific name which dignifies their illness will one day be recognized and employed worldwide.
