BRIEF BACKGROUND

Dr. Mikovits
As director of research at the Whittemore-Peterson Institute in Reno, Nevada, Judy Mikovits gained worldwide attention in October with publication of a paper in the journal Science, reporting “Detection of an Infectious Retrovirus, XMRV, in Blood Cells of Patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.” To review the article and subsequent media coverage, see “In The News” at WPInstitute.org.

XMRV Research Continues, Worldwide
Dr. Mikovits' team at Whittemore-Peterson, and collaborating researchers around the globe, are working intensively on next steps in the research – which relates to ME/CFS, fibromyalgia and other neuroimmune disorders, certain cancers, and much more.
