XMRV: One year on

One year ago today, we saw the publication of the Science paper linking ME/CFS to a retrovirus called XMRV.

Since then there have been a bunch of studies that failed to replicate the Whittemore Peterson Institute's results—none of which were true replication studies. Since then we have seen one study that linked ME/CFS not with XMRV, but other MLVs.

Since then, the Whittemore Peterson Institute opened its new facility at the University of Nevada School of Medicine.

The pace is picking up. Progress makes me hopeful.

It also makes me impatient.
