On January 22, Dr. Judy Mikovits, PhD, director of research for the Whittemore Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Disease, conducted a 2½-hour XMRV seminar in Santa Barbara, CA.
Dr Mikovits spends time answering questions.
She talks about other ongoing studies including big co-horts one of which is on patients with Chronic Lyme disease being done by Jonathan Kerr. She says patients with Chronic Lyme disease are treated on antibiotics until the infection is almost cured but then the immune system can't clear the infection and they become sick again. She hypothesise that perhaps if these patients are also infected with XMRV retrovius, which can affect the function of the immune system, that is why these patients get sick again.
