Don't forget the Third positive XMRV study


74.5% of CFS patients from 3 countries test positive for XMRV in an American CFS clinic.

50% have healthy family members also infected with XMRV. (This figure may rise after further testing).

46% (non CFS) have family members with Cancer.

51% have family members sick with CFS or CFS 'like' illness.

96% of CFS in this study have LV Diastolic Dysfunction (mitochondrial induced).
28% have family members with Autoimmune Disease.
8% of CFS with XMRV have Mold & Lyme infection.

It should be noted that studies in poster sessions are considered preliminary in the scientific world pending publishing in a peer-reviewed journal.

Any word on what journals it has been submitted to?

Sorry, but this one doesn't count. It is a poster presentation, not a scientific peer reviewed publication.
Done with a commercial unvalidated test instead of a lab. I don't think VIP Dx' tests count as clinical tests.
