No Evidence XMRV Plays Role In CFS, Contamination More Likely Explanation Say New Reports
Quoted Text
In October 2009, Science published a study by Vincent C Lombardi and colleagues that "raised the possibility" XMRV may be a "contributing factor" in the development of CFS because they found it in the blood of 67% of patients with the disorder compared to 3.7% of healthy controls.

...However, since Lombardi and colleagues published their findings, studies published in other journals have not been able to repeat them.

Now, this week, Science has posted online two new reports that strongly support the growing idea that a more likely explanation for the link between XMRV and CFS is "contamination of laboratories and research reagents with the virus", as phrased by an accompanying Editorial Expression of Concern about the original study.
