"This has been a difficult and disappointing process for them and for CFS patients, but hopefully we have all learned lessons that will guide future research and lead to discovery of the cause and cure of this disease".So Mikovits/Lombardi/WPI have retracted a part of their Science paper. And the results of the blood working group look like contamination.
“I commend them on their scientific integrity and commitment to the scientific process,”The WPI have pushed the ME/CFS issue, even if they are wrong with regards to XMRV. I think they find out what has happened to cause these results and will publish it – it just takes some time.
Lots of Newspapers Covering ME/CFS TodayThe really good news is that the Lights & Bateman get a Million dollars to do more research into ME/CFS.
I have read the articles from the major US sources, and all spoke of CFS like a serious physical disease. It was all in the context of the XMRV studies coming up negative, but they only quoted "real" ME/CFS docs and researchers, so barely a breath of psychological mumbo-jumbo anywhere.
