NY Times Article on XMRV and CFS

Here's a New York Times article published yesterday on the public outcry over holding back publication of the latest XMRV/CFS study.  It's actually a very good article for a non-CFS publication!   It explains the science, the controversy, and some background very clearly.

The article includes a link to a blog about treating CFS/XMRV with anti-retroviral medications, written by a CFS patient (and doctor) who is treating herself and her daughter, both diagnosed with CFS, with anti-retroviral drugs - apparently with some success.  I haven't had a chance to read the blog myself yet but intend to later today - looks fascinating!

  1. Sue, you are remarkable with the amount of information you come across and share. The NY Times had you in mind with their final comment about how intelligent and informed the CFS community is. That blog has me so dang hopeful. Thanks for sharing this wonderful stuff.
