Whittemore Peterson Institute Releases Official Statement on UK Study
The Whittemore Peterson Institute has released an official statement regarding the recent UK XMRV study. The position of the institute is that it basically discredits the validity of the study in whole, stating it does not even qualify as a replication study. The Whittemore Peterson Institute states that they are actively collaborating with other research groups around the world, and as well Judy Mikovits stated in a New Zealand Herald article that blood their group tested from the UK showed very similar percentages of XMRV infection in London patients as in their published study! Much like when Robert Gallo and Luc Montaigner discovered the HIV virus, other groups initially disputed their findings because they did not use the exact same methodology in their replication studies!
