Dr. Mikovits holder foredrag om XMRV 17.01 i Santa Rosa
Som jeg tidligere har skrevet om sier ryktene at Dr. Mikovits vil legge frem resultater av retroviralbehandling av XMRV-positive ME pasienter på dette foredraget. Les det HER.
Utfra informasjon hentet fra Bohemian.com kan det virke som om hun vil rydde opp i kontroversen som har rådet den siste tiden:
«Like medical theatrics straight out of a Michael Crichton novel, certain groups have challenged Mikovits’ claim that strong associations can be made between XMRV and cancer or other neuroimmune diseases. A study in England purported to find none of the retrovirus in blood samples, a claim later discredited when it was revealed that the researchers had used an entirely different method of testing from the original.
«[Mikovit’s paper] really upset a lot of apple carts,» says Klaber. «There were people with cherished beliefs about the cause of chronic fatigue were not happy. Ego, greed, prestige and power is as rampant in academia as anywhere else.»
Klaber encourages anyone suffering from chronic or debilitating illness to attend the public talk. «Significant numbers of people have chronic illness and just can’t feel happy,» he says. «XMRV is obviously playing a role for many of these people.»»
