A series of articles updating the status of XMRV, MLV and HGRV research at Y/E 2011, as follows:
“A Message from CII Director W. Ian Lipkin Regarding the XMRV/MLV CFS/ME Study” (The Center for Infection and Immunity, Columbia University, December 28, 2011)
“Authors retract paper on detection of murine leukemia virus-releated sequences in CFS patients” (Virology Blog, December 26, 2011)
”Changing status of XMRV / HGRV research” (The Cheney Clinic, December 5, 2011)
Notice about names
The Massachusetts ME/CFS & FM Association would like to clarify the use of the various acronyms for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Chronic Fatigue & Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS) and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) on this site. When we generate our own articles on the illness, we will refer to it as ME/CFS, the term now generally used in the United States. When we are reporting on someone else’s report, we will use the term they use. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other federal agencies, including the CDC, are currently using ME/CFS.
Massachusetts ME/CFS & FM Association changed its name in July, 2018, to reflect this consensus.
