    European ME Alliance Press Release

    October 2009

    Following the news of the recent discovery of the XMRV retrovirus the European ME Alliance wish to issue this statement -

    The European ME Alliance (EMEA) wish to congratulate the Whittemore-Peterson Institute for the painstaking, professional and groundbreaking work which its staff have performed, along with the National Cancer Institute and the Cleveland Clinic, which has resulted in the publication of the findings of a novel virus XMRV in causing or influencing ME.

    The members of EMEA recognise that the staff at WPI are performing research of the highest quality.

    The publication of this research in Science magazine is itself an amazing achievement.

    This work has been achieved in an amazingly short period of time and the tenacity, dedication and sheer excellence of the WPI has brought hope to millions of people, patients, carers and friends, in Europe and further afield.

    EMEA announces its continued full support for WPI and hopes to be able to become a stronger partner in the future
