Every now and then I come across a really nice write-up by some one else, and rather than do my own commentary, you can check out this well reasoned and balanced synopsis by Edward Winstead at the NCI on XMRV:

XMRV Researchers Discuss the State of the Science

XmrvAlthough my interest was focused on the relevance of the XMRV virus to prostate cancer, the potential role in chronic fatigue syndrome was also covered.  The NIH have posted a webcast of the Q&A session for those of you who are interested in this topic.

If you're on Twitter, you can follow Ted and his colleague, Carmen Phillips, who both write well researched articles for the NCI Cancer Bulletin, one of my regular weekly reads.

Keep up the great work, guys!
