Wow - sorry this post went unanswered...but 2 cents is 2 cents...

No its not XMRV - but it is another potential Tick born infection...originates in mice...if memory serves...Like our buddy Lyme...

If I can remember correctly, I believe they feel it may be more related to CFS - so it would make sense that it would be just another co-infection...

I do have info somewhere on it...but its still in the study stages - thus too little is known to say for sure...

I can't keep them under control as I get sick very easy. But I also had cancer and had 37 rounds of radiation so that really shot my body to hell. I try and eat well when I can but I love my CANDY...Sad
