Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: It's Not XMRV

Editors of the esteemed journal Science today asked the authors of the 2009 study linking chronic fatigue syndrome to the retrovirus XMRV to retract their original paper. Outspoken co-author Judy Mikovitz has so far refused to do so. The Wall Street Journal broke the story. The Retraction Watch blog has an interesting analysis and commentary.

And that is that.

We are crestfallen, but not surprised, to hear this news. See our March 29 post for strong hints in this general direction. Look for changes soon to our CFS page, along with a flurry of important updates and upgrades all across our website.

O2.0 is the news blog of HyperbaricLink, the independent web guide to hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
