I watched several clips from the CFSAC meeting and I wonder about testing, etc. Dr. Coffin was very cautious when answering questions. He continued to stress "more" is needed, etc. and I completely understand this, because more is needed... However, for those of us that are trying to get the WPI/VIP labs test, is it a waste ? Will the test just be a "positive" or "negative" type test ? Will it have accurate titers and should it be ordered with an immune panel [B/T Cell counts, RNase L, etc. ?] so an association can be determined... Or am I jumping directly into their research ? Dr. Coffin also mentioned that, from what he knows, XMRV is very slow at replicating and infecting new cells. [Or maybe I got that wrong] While I feel that I will be jumping the gun with testing, I am just suffering too much not to. I want there to be some kind of quantification in the testing. I know many of us want to take the wait and see approach but our bodies are pushing us in a different direction. If this turns out to be the cause of illness, for even a small number of us, then it will only get worse with time. I hate to be a guinea pig but this is just too hard to live with. Anyway, just looking for thoughts on XMRV testing for those that watched the meeting online.
