TODAY at 3 pm Eastern Time
Normally I would tune in just to see them roll their eyes at the stupid questions they are getting from the XMRV True Believer Brigade, but this is not a video chat, so it would be nice if some ERV readers had some cool questions to ask them and we could all learn something!
EDIT 1 PM– According to tweets from Trine Tsouderos:
- #mecfs: BWG fr journal Science: 7/9 labs found 0 #xmrv/mlv in samples, 2 (wpi/nci) did, but couldnt tell difference btwn controls/ patients
- Authors of original 2009 Science paper on #xmrv #mecfs RETRACT several figures and tables related to findings by Silverman and Das Gupta.
- From Simmons et al (blood working group): “Blood donor screening is not warranted.” #xmrv #mecfs
- “Science currently stands by its Editorial Expression of Concern…editors will be discussing next steps w/ authors.” #xmrv #mecfs
Working now, Ill almost certainly a post on this up tomorrow.
