The negative studies - they've sufficed at discrediting good research over the last year - several researchers are finding it difficult to get their XMRV studies published. Rather it seems who you are matters - the CDC, the Wessley group in Britain. The time has come to put politics aside, and put the issue to rest for good. There is a rule in science that in order for a confirmation study to be valid, it means copy exactly!!!
In order to do that, it would mean taking a modest amount of samples, using different methods in the same laboratory. So if we have replica A using the method described by Mikovits et. al, B using the CDC method, C using the Wessely study, and only the first method shows positivity, then contamination can be ruled out.
