    The XMRV study wasn't blocked for publication in the UK. The US gov't blocked the publication for both the CDC study and the study done by the NIH and FDA. The CDC concluded that XMRV wasn't found in the CFS population, whereas the NIH and FDA concluded that they did find XMRV. They were all asked not to publish their findings until further research was done, however, the CDC went ahead and published their results a few days later anyways. Supposedly the US gov't is going to allow the release of the results of the NIH and FDA research in the next couple of weeks.
