Another negative paper coming soon - be aware
« on: May 21, 2011, 07:38:32 PM »
Word is there is another negative paper coming shortly and the patients used had previously tested negative in the Lombardi study.  This is yet another attempt to kill the research.  Please be aware and prepare so it does not come as a surprise.

Previously tested negatvie?
I guess you meant: "Previously tested positive", no?

Anyway, thanks so much for informing us!

Is this the Levy paper? Another non-replication attempt

Ignore them.  It's all in the method

Sounds like the Levy, Peterson, Abbott Lambs, CDC paper. 
 
We've been aware.  Supposedly in Science magazine.

Having Peterson's name on such a paper is going to hurt though... at least I will be hurt  :o

After Dr. Peterson's talk in Calgary, in which he dismissed HGRV's, why would anyone still be expecting Peterson to do anything positive--or even neutral?

Look I'm getting sick of this rubbish.

Testing PCR negative patients amounts to gross betrayal of everyone. 

Totally ridiculous!

No the patients were previously tested and were negative by PCR in the Lombardi study.

So I guess if they don't have XMRV to begin with they wouldn't have found it now would they?

No, they would not.  It sounds to me like Levy & Peterson wanted to be sure they would get a negative paper.

Or they have a variant other than XMRV

Yes there is that too.  Some ME/CFS patients may test negative fore XMRV but actually have another MLV.  I'm still waiting to find out if I have other variants as well.
