Traces of a mouse-related virus have been found in 86 percent of patients having chronic fatigue syndrome by government scientists. This discovery is probably going to awaken the controversy involving the virus extensively known as XMRV.
The presence of this virus in chronic fatigue syndrome patients was initially reported by Nevada scientists in 2009. Unfortunately three later studies were unable to detect it. Recently researchers from three different government agencies announced that they had found the virus in both stored and fresh blood samples.
The government is currently sponsoring numerous studies to establish, along with other things, whether or not the virus is present in many or most patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.
