The European ME Alliance (EMEA)
wish to congratulate the Whittemore-Peterson Institute for the painstaking,
professional and groundbreaking work which its staff have performed, along with
the National Cancer Institute and the Cleveland
Clinic, which has resulted in the publication of the findings of a
novel virus XMRV in causing or influencing ME.
The members of EMEA
recognise that the staff at WPI are performing research of the highest quality.
The publication of
this research in Science magazine is itself an amazing achievement.
This work has been
achieved in an amazingly short period of time and the tenacity, dedication and
sheer excellence of the WPI has brought hope to millions of people, patients,
carers and friends, in Europe and further afield.
announces its continued full support for WPI and hopes to be able to become a
stronger partner in the future
