This time, it is not contamination with mouse retroviruses. This time it is supposed autoimmunity caused by human endogenous retroviruses (HERV).
And the jokers at
Mark my word: The next thing they'll do is try to sell expensive and useless "HERV" tests to patients – to "help" them, you know. And after a year or two, no other lab will be able to replicate their results, and the WPI will cry "foul play" and "conspiracy against ME/CFS patients", and they will be loved by the ME/CFS fringe.
I must admit: After Mikovits was kicked out from by the WPI, I had some naive hope that the WPI and Vincent Lombardi might turn a corner to the better – oh boy was I wrong.
Working with KDM? The WPI might as well try to channel the ghost of Karol Józef Wojtyła – this would be equally useless for ME/CFS patients, but would offer a higher entertainment value. So I think you can judge someone by the company he keeps.
They say that one rotten apple spoils a barrel full of good ones – I wonder, was there ever a good one at the WPI?
Mind you, the KDM connenction – via Redlabs or what's it called – goes back to the beginnings of the WPI, as far as I know.
I'm naive, I know.
I wonder why Mikovits didn't fit in? I mean, she was the perfect fit for this den of quacks. Perfect.
