More on XMRV and CFS/ME

I came across another couple of articles on XMRV this week that I thought might be of interest to you.

First is a brief article (actually a sidebar) called "Unraveling the Mysterious XMRV Virus" in a larger article on virus research at the University of Missouri.  The cool thing about this article is that it appears in a scientific news website completely unrelated to typical CFS/ME news - word is starting to spread about XMRV in all sorts of scientific research venues, which is great for us.

The other article is a very nice summary of XMRV basics, "An Explanation of XMRV Research So Far...", posted in one of the forums at Phoenix Rising by Bob.  If the scientific details have been confusing to you (as they have to most of us!), this is a clear and well-written summary of the basics to date.

Hope you have a great Halloween weekend!
