It seems that Dr. John Mellors and Dr. Frank Maldarelli have been recruited against XMRV. Unfortunately this information has been confirmed by @xmrvbug in Twitter. The goal of this study is to make XMRV and CFS go away.
They will not run validated assays and this study can only do harm to the entire patient community as it is purposely designed NOT to detect XMRV... “Discourage anyone from participating in this new false study.”
It is very sad but we must not forget that WPI is moving forward. There are many reputable scientists and physicians who are working hard to learn the truth and WPI will not give up seeking not only the truth behind XMRV/MRV but all aspects of the pathophysiology of ME/CFS.
