Is that correct? http://forums.aboutmecfs.org/showthread.php?4031-SolveCFS-Biobank-Beginning&highlight=klimas+caa+biobank
Do we have a source, if so that's pretty incredible Robyn. (Incredibly sad).
It's almost as if the rumour Nancy Klimas got turned away at the WPI door for a job, and is saying F8ck Y&u to the WPI. This could be incorrect though. Maybe Nancy Klimas had does research before for the CDC and Reeves/Unger? Who knows.
However, we need to make sure this is accurate before getting majorly pissed off with Nancy Klimas.
I must say it's quite strange Nancy Klimas has access to many 100's if not 1000's of patients and hasn't done an XMRV ''CFS' study with the VIPDX culture test.
(In contrast to Paul Cheney & Kenny De Meirleir & Dr Bell - teaming up with Hanson).
It makes you wonder if Nancy Klimas's 'Chronic Fatigue' patients, are just that. Perhaps not all, but the majority?
Nancy Klimas was the first out of the gate when XMRV news broke, the first after the WPI. I reallt appreciated her taking the trouble to do some videos, and go on TV even. It is quite bizarre what is apparently happening and I can't think why unless there is a simple explanation.
And that could be???....
From the link:
A subject will be eligible for inclusion in current SolveCFS BioBank studies if they have previously been diagnosed with CFS by either the Fukuda (1994) research criteria or the Canadian (2003) clinical criteria by one of these four physicians:
• Lucinda Bateman, M.D., Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Consultation Clinic, Salt Lake City, Utah
• Stephen Gluckman, M.D., University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
• Nancy G. Klimas, M.D., University of Miami/Veterans Affairs Administration, Miami, Florida
• Charles Lapp, M.D., Hunter-Hopkins Clinic, Charlotte, North Carolina
The general inclusion and exclusion criteria listed below also apply. CFS patients will be preferentially selected if they have been diagnosed by the Canadian clinical criteria or have documented abnormal NK cell laboratory results.
I believe a few of Dr. Peterson's patients have reported they were referred to that Biobank study as well.
