Ny studie fra England konkluderer med ingen assosiasjon mellom XMRV og ME!
Utdrag fra artikkel hentet fra The ME Association sine nettsider:
«The research, which has been published in the on-line edition of Retrovirology, was carried out by a collaborative of very reputable virologists and retrovirologists. The group includes two researchers (ie Professor John Gow and Dr Jonathan Kerr) who are already involved in biomedical research into various aspects of ME/CFS. Dr Jonathan Stoye, from the National Institute for Medical Research, co-authored the editorial in Science that accompanied the paper from the American group which first raised the possibility of a link between XMRV and ME/CFS back in October 2009»
«Those involved in this replication study concluded that:
No association between XMRV infection and CFS was observed in the samples tested, either by PCR or serological methodologies. The non-specific neutralisation observed in multiple serum samples suggests that it is unlikely that these responses were elicited by XMRV and highlights the danger of over-estimating XMRV frequency based on serological assays. In spite of this, we believe that the detection of neutralising activity did not inhibit VSV-G pseudotyped MLV in at least four human samples indicates that XMRV infection may occur in the general population, although with currently uncertain outcomes.»
