    Hi all,

    When read things like this (quote below regarding XMRV) and wonder is it misinformation or is it information that we do not have access to?

    "But Michael Busch, director of the Blood Systems Research Institute, of San Francisco, said the newer pathogens that worry blood safety experts, such as dengue fever, SARS and the XMRV retrovirus "have not been sexually transmissable."

    I mean, we've only recently gotten a testing procedure that would prove whether or not someone has XMRV in the first place, right? How could they know?

    I decided to e-mail him, Michael Busch, with my question...what's his source. He's in the blood business - it's a bold statement OR a misquote.
