XMRV Study in the UK

Thought I’d post this link. I heard about the study from my ME specialist in December 2009…

UK XMRV Study Results Published

Interesting that the results were negative… I wonder if it is quite telling about the subject sampling that was used in the research by the WPI? Or, as the article states, the reasearch methods used in the UK study were not suitable for detecting the XMRV. The scientist in me thinks that surely money would not have been spent on a research study where the validity (if not the reliability) of the techniques used were in doubt! Or am I just being naiive about researchers wasting funding on nonsense studies?!
