Template for XMRV Replication

By K. Kimberly McCleary, President & CEO

The Nov. 3, 2010 issue of Viruses includes a commentary article by Ila Singh, MD, PhD, that proposes criteria for a definitive study of gammaretroviruses in CFS patients. Dr. Singh’s group has been studying XMRV and murine leukemia viruses for many years and she is currently testing freshly collected samples from CFS patients and matched healthy controls identified by expert physician Lucinda Bateman, MD. Amy Dockser-Marcus reported on Dr. Singh’s proposal and the study being planned by virus hunter Ian Lipkin of Columbia University in today’s Wall Street Journal HealthBlog.

K. Kimberly McCleary served as the Association’s chief staff executive from 1991-2013.
