In his study, Switzer did not include that Mikovits sent positive XMRV samples to the CDC. CFS Central has learned that two other labs have confirmed the samples sent to the CDC as XMRV positive. In addition, CFS Central has learned that another lab sent the CDC blood samples that were positive for XMRV as well.
make one wonder. According to Vernon, the samples used by the CDC team when searching for XMRV were stored in such a way that viral evidence would have been destroyed. They needed samples in green-topped, sodium heparin tubes. They were stored in something else. That strategy, which would have ensured no virus was found, would have worked to ‘disprove’ the existence of defective Rnase-L and HHV-6, too. Unless the samples were stored with a sodium heparin solution, the samples would have been useless.
