Paolucci:

XMRV-infecties

zijn geen "laboratoriumvervuiling",

maar ook

niet alom aanwezig in CVS

 

 

 

 


 

In een studie van Paolucci en collega's bleken 2 van de 12 CVS-patiŽnten "XMRV"-positief.

 

Volgens de onderzoekers toont hun onderzoek twee dingen aan:

  • het vaststellen van een "XMRV"-infectie is niet het gevolg van "contaminatie", en
  • "XMRV"-infecties zijn niet wijd verspreid onder CVS-patiŽnten (1 op 6).

 


 

 

 

Xenotropic and polytropic murine leukemia virus-related sequences

are not detected in the majority of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.

Abstract:

 

XMRV and polytropic MLV-related virus

have been controversially associated with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

 

Subsequent reports failed to detect XMRV and MLV-related virus in CFS patients, and

the previous results have been interpreted as a massive laboratory contamination by mouse DNA sequences.

 

Among 12 sequential CFS patients,

two were positive for XMRV/MLV sequences.

 

In contrast,

40 selected control subjects were negative.

 

CSF patients and controls were negative

for mitochondrial mouse-specific DNA sequences.

 

These findings

do not confirm

the high frequency of MLV-related viruses infection in CFS patients,

but also contrast

the widespread laboratory contamination previously suggested.
