Amerikanske helsemyndigheter med nytt prosjekt: «THE RELATIONSHIP OF XMRV TO FUNCTIONAL STATUS AND CO-INFECTIONS IN CHRONIC FATIGUE»

Hentet fra projectreporter.nih.gov:

» We plan to learn more about the association of XMRV and other pathogens with CFS by examining an outbreak cohort not previously screened for the presence of XMRV. Other viruses, microbes, and parasites that may be associated with XMRV will also be detected with the use of a panmicrobial DNA microarray. We will determine whether the presence of XMRV and/or other pathogens is related to the current state of health of individuals who became ill during a 1985 outbreak in rural New York»

» We will examine phylogenetic relationships between the Nevada and New York XMRV variants and will observe whether any amino acid substitutions correlate with the current state of health of the subjects. We will also study the possible association of XMRV and XMRV protein expression in the phenomenon of exercise intolerance. We will examine XMRV-infected CFS patients before and after an exacerbation of symptoms caused by serial exercise testing. We will determine whether increases in inflammatory cytokines, a growth factor, and nitric oxide, or blood cell changes are correlated with the extent of reduced physical ability that can be measured during a second exercise test taken after induction of postexertional malaise.»

    Tusen takk til Helle for tips!!🙂

    Kan jo nesten ikke bli bedre? Manglet bare at WPI kommer inn i bildet :p Håper virkelig dem klarer å finne noe spennende!!🙂

    Hvorfor driver ikke Wyller med slik forskning? Æææææ… Er jo dette som er rett spor🙂 80s and the real CFS<3 Utbrudd å hele pakka. Høres faktisk ut som om noen tror det er smittsomt😉 Eller er det fortsatt hysteria?😉

    Dette hørtes da utrolig goood ut *tommel opp*

    ser at avslutting på prosjektet:
    Project End Date: 31-MAY-2012
    😉 skulle ønske det va i mårra….😀

    oj oj oj.. måtte resultatene nå bli representative, uansett konklusjon! Dette kan fort bli «sprengstoff».. –
    -Kanskje London-konferansen burde vært utsatt noen uker😉

    Antar att det är det här epidemiska utbrottet i Lyndonville som avses. Från Wikipedia:

    The pediatrician’s interest in CFS began in 1985 when an apparent cluster outbreak of 216 persons occurred in his rural community in upstate New York. He has written extensively on the condition, including a thirteen year follow-up study of the children who became ill during the original outbreak.[3][7]

    Bell was involved in identifying the outbreak in Lyndonville, New York, of what was known at the time as chronic Epstein-Barr virus (now more commonly referred to as chronic fatigue syndrome or CFS).[1] When Bell was interviewed about the outbreak in a 1996 Prime Time Live episode, the reporter described Bell’s appeal to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for help with the illness, but Bell says the CDC didn’t mention a similar outbreak in Lake Tahoe, which he learned about later. He met with other CFS researchers at a 1987 conference, and joined an investigation with researchers Paul Cheney and Elaine DeFreitas involving a possible retrovirus association with chronic fatigue syndrome.[8] In 1990, the researchers presented evidence they found DNA sequences very similar to a known human retrovirus in some CFS patients, at a conference in Kyoto, Japan.[9][10] Their study was later published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.[11]

    Det er det såkaldte Lyndonville projekt, hvor Dr. David Bell er involvert.

    Her er resultater fra et pilotprojekt:
