Journal retracts study linking a virus to ME

A study linking a virus to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also known as ME, has been withdrawn by the journal which published it.

The 2009 study, in Science, suggested a mouse virus, XMRV, was linked to the illness.

But in September this year, the study’s authors withdrew some of their findings, saying they were based on “contaminated data”.
