Saturday 20 February 2010

ProHealthProHealth reports:

SAT FEB 20: Mikovits & Cheney to Host Q&A on XMRV & ME/CFS

February 16, 2010

Tune in at 2 pm Eastern Time This Saturday to hear Dr. Judy Mikovits, PhD, and Dr. Paul Cheney, MD, answer questions from around the world regarding the XMRV retrovirus and ME/CFS.

• The event is available FREE to anyone. For the time where you live, go to the World Clock Time Converter, plug in the time (2 pm Feb 20) and time zone (EST North America), and convert to the place where you live.

• To watch, simply visit the Cheney Research LIVE Web Broadcasts page (www.cheneyresearch.com/live), where you can download the latest version of Flash player if needed.

• Question submission is invited through Friday, Feb 19 from subscribers to CheneyResearch.com and patients of the Cheney Clinic.

NOTE: According to a post on the WPI Facebook site, anyone may submit questions to Dr. Mikovits in advance by e-mailing andrea.whittemore@wpinstitute.org. Andrea will pass them on.

Topics are likely to include:

• The second UK-based study reporting failure to find XMRV in ME/CFS patient samples, published online Feb 15 ("Absence of xenotropic murine leukemia virus-related virus in UK patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.") In this regard, the WPI has posted a brief formal response to the article on the WPI Facebook and may add relevant info to its XMRV Q&A page in advance of the Saturday webcast.

• The collaborative XMRV research project that Mikovits & Cheney reportedly have planned,

• And much more regarding the researchers’ current and projected work.

Dr. Mikovits is Director of Research at the Whittemore Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Disease (www.wpinstitute.org) in Reno, Nevada. Dr. Mikovits led the team which published the Oct 6, 2009 paper in Science, "Detection of Infectious Retrovirus, XMRV, in the Blood Cells of CFS Patients."

Dr. Cheney is a long-time ME/CFS clinical researcher, and director of the Cheney Clinic (http://www.cheneyclinic.com) in Asheville, North Carolina.
