15e internationale konferentie

over HTLV en aanverwante virussen (Leuven):

XMRV-voor- en tegenstanders aan het woord

 

 

 

 


 

Van 5 tot en met 8 juni vindt er, o.m. in Leuven!, een groot international kongres plaats over HTLV (dat o.m. leukemie veroorzaakt) en aanverwante virussen/ziekten., waaronder XMRV.

Op het kongres komen "voorstanders" (Silverman) en "tegenstanders"(Switzer) aan het woord.
