The Whittemore Peterson Institute would like to congratulate Harvey Alter, MD, and Shyh-Ching Lo, MD, PhD, on their publication of the replication study.

A quote from Dr Joe Burrascano for patients with Lyme Disease-

'Definitely stay tuned - the volume of new and important information about this virus and its disease associations is increasing rapidly and in my opinion should be a concern to every patient with chronic neuro-immune diseases, including those with chronic Lyme.'

  1. It's all very exciting. I'm overwhelmed by it all. :)

    You are in my thoughts especially with this World breaking News.

    The Daily Mail newspaper reported on it in such a look warm way.


    Clearly hadn't a clue of the significance to so many millons of sick people.

    I spoke with several other National newspapers all very disinterested, if only they used the brains they were born with.

    Still the important people, the doctors, researchers in the fore front will drive this forward now for all the patients.

    Take care

  3. MLV is NOT about mice.

    Sorry you seem to be upset I am just posting what the authors say in their research

    one extract being
    'The gag and env sequences from CFS patients were more closely related
    to those of polytropic mouse endogenous retroviruses than to
    those of XMRVs and were even less closely related to those of
    ecotropic MLVs.

    I would agree that the whole issue is about ME/CFS and what retrovirus are being found in patients.

  5. Thanks for putting all this info together in one place, Joanne!!
