Background

On January 22, Dr. Judy Mikovits, PhD, director of research for the Whittemore Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Disease,* conducted a 2½-hour XMRV seminar in Santa Barbara, CA.

The patient-oriented event was sponsored by the HHV-6 Foundation and ProHealth.com, and was introduced by WPI Founder & President Annette Whittemore.

This highly informative presentation and Q&A cover a multitude of intriguing details and plans that patients & researchers worldwide have been speculating about for months - since discovery of the XMRV retrovirus in ME/CFS patients’ blood was reported last October in the journal Science,** and a later paper by UK researchers published in PLoS One reported finding no XMRV.

____

*Located within the University of Nevada School of Medicine’s Center for Molecular Medicine, the Whittemore Peterson Institute (www.wpinstitute.org) will be the nation’s first comprehensive translational research facility dedicated to the research and treatment of neuro-immune diseases when it opens September of 2010.

** “Detection of an Infectious Retrovirus, XMRV, in Blood Cells of Patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,” Lombardi VC, Mikovits JA, et al. Science, Oct 8, 2009.

A transcript of the seminar is also available here.
