XMRV in 70% of ME Patients in Spain

Researchers at the Hospital Vall d'Hebron in Barcelona found that 70% of a sample of patients tested positive for the retrovirus.

[Note: the testing was conducted in Barcelona, not sent back to the U.S.]

Looks like the Spanish need to get clear that educational level of female patients is not relevant, so why mention it?

All over the world, people with more education make more money and are able to seek medical help for their illnessess. It would be foolish to assume educational level has anything to do with ME/CFS.

At any rate, it appears that Spanish scientists have a better education than British ones, at least when it comes to finding retroviruses.
