Dr. Judy Mikovits svar til Science Magazine og pressemelding fra WPI

Hentet fra wpinstitute.org:

«In summary, human retroviruses are not known to infect individuals according to their sex or age therefore there can be no excuse as to why it would be acceptable to study the viruses in cancer but not in those with infectious neuro-immune diseases. They create lifelong infection in their hosts by integrating into the genome of their victims. Thirty years of murine gammaretroviral research provide compelling evidence that these viruses cause immune deficiencies, neurological disease and cancer in mammals and are therefore possible contributors to human neuro-immune diseases such as CFS. However, good  scientific work is difficult and takes time. These ongoing studies deserve to receive a fair and impartial evaluation in the peer-review process. The critical question which remains is not simply whether gammaretroviruses play a role in CFS or cancer but in how many other human  diseases? Therefore, we feel this is an extremely premature action which is not in the best interest of the scientific community or human health and again we respectfully request that you allow the scientific process to run its course unhindered by bias.»

Pressemelding fra WPI:

«WPI Response to the Science Editorial Expression of Concern

“We are extremely disappointed that the editor of Science has published an “editorial expression of concern”, regarding the Lombardi et al. study.   The authors of the Lombardi study believe that it is premature to conclude that the negative studies are accurate or change the conclusions of the original studies and we fully agree,” said Annette Whittemore, President of the Whittemore Peterson Institute. “Much of the work on this new retrovirus has yet to be performed, and we look forward to new studies which will support the results and findings described by these accomplished scientists. There has been no attempt to fully replicate this study to date. All of the negative studies have failed to use the methods, materials or processes used in the original study and many have been poorly designed. WPI researchers will continue to perform the critical research needed to help the patients who suffer from neuro-immune disease.”  In addition, the WPI will continue to offer other scientific researchers the materials and  methods necessary to perform a full and accurate replication study in the future.»
