"It is (ME/CFS) like some great constricting snake that denies its victims the final convulsion." Llewellyn King

"A CFS patient feels the same or worse than congestive heart failure. The same or worse than late stage AIDS." Nancy Klimas: View video here.

"A CFS patient feels every day significantly the same as an AIDS patient feels two months before death." Dr. Mark Loveless, AIDS and CFS researcher, in a statement to congress on CFS Awareness day, May 12th, 1995.

WPI's statement regarding the UK's bogus replication study.

In light of the UK's announcement of their XMRV replication study today, and how they failed to connect XMRV with any of their CFS patients?, here is a statement from WPI:

NOTE: WPI conducted a 6 month rigorous peer review of their findings before sending their research to Science for publication. The UK reviewed theirs for.. um... 6 days? 

Those of us who have been ill with CFS/ME for many years, recognize the actions of those who are trying to impede the process of replicating WPI's research that points to the new XMRV retro-virus having associations with CFS/ME. They are running for cover, and using mis-information such as this as a distraction, and to soothe the psychiatric and insurance industry demons. They can try to slow down progress to a crawl. It might give them time to think of how to save their reputations, and their careers. They are running out of breath trying so hard. It is a marathon they cannot finish, much less win. Remember now, just because someone is in front of the pack, doesn't mean they are leaders.
