ME + me : XMRV and ME-connection confirmed
I am still not well at all and still sad, and also didn't sleep enough,
but there is some very interesting news, that I here simply reproduce,
with the link to the original in the title
Gendringen, NL (MMD Newswire) June 22, 2010 -- The FDA and the NIH
have independently confirmed the XMRV findings as published in
Science, October last. This confirmation was issued by Dr. Harvey
Alter of the NIH during a closed workshop on blood transfusion
held on May 26-27 in Zagreb. Two journalists from the Dutch
magazine for health professionals, ORTHO, who have been working on
XMRV stories for several months, were able to obtain a copy of the
In the October 8, 2009 issue of Science Express, the
Lombardi-Mikovits group at the Whittemore Peterson Institute
(WPI), the Cleveland Clinic and the National Cancer Institute
(NCI) reported that 67% of 101 chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)
patients tested positive for infection with xenotropic murine
retrovirus (XMRV). Only 3.7% of 218 healthy subjects tested were
positive for this gammaretrovirus. Since that time, a number of
research groups have proved unable to independently confirm these
On Friday last, the AABB released an Association Bulletin
recommending that its member blood collectors actively discourage
potential donors who have been diagnosed with CFS from donating
blood or blood components. This interim measure was proposed by
the AABB Interorganizational Task Force on XMRV. This Task Force
includes representatives from several government agencies,
including the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Institutes of
The fact that the measure was introduced suggests the presence
of information not yet published. The ORTHO journalists were able
to obtain a pdf document of the lecture given by Harvey Alter at
the IPFA/PEI 17th Workshop on 'Surveillance and screening of Blood
Borne Pathogens' in Zagreb. The International Plasma Fractionation
Association (IPFA) represents the not-for-profit organizations
around the world involved in plasma fractionation. The IPFA is
based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
The highly-experienced Dr. Harvey Alter is Clinical Studies
Chief at the Infectious Diseases and Immunogenetics Section of the
Department of Transfusion Medicine at the NIH Clinical Center in
Bethesda. "The data in the Lombardi, et al Science manuscript are
extremely strong and likely true, despite the controversy", was
one comment on the XMRV findings reported by Alter in Zagreb.
"Although blood transmission to humans has not been proved, it is
probable. The association with CFS is very strong, but causality
not proved. XMRV and related MLVs are in the donor supply with an
early prevalence estimate of 3%‐7%. We (FDA & NIH) have
independently confirmed the Lombardi group findings."
While finding and checking this I also found this, that I reproduce in
Dutch, with a link in the title to the English, that I knew already,
though not from the source quoted here. It is dated Apr 16, 2010, and
confirms that the Nijmegen "scientists" lied and deceived about the
presence of XMRV in the blood of Dutch patients:
Persbericht. Wťl XMRV-virus bij Nederlandse
Gendringen Ė 16 april 2010. Onderzoekers van het UMC St.
Radboud maakten in februari bekend in het bloed van Nederlandse
patiŽnten met het chronisch vermoeidheidssyndroom (ME/CVS) geen
XMRV-virus te hebben aangetroffen. Ze verzwegen echter dat
Amerikaanse onderzoekers in bloedstalen van dezelfde patiŽnten wťl
sporen vonden van dit retrovirus. Dit blijkt uit een webpublicatie
van het tijdschrift Ortho, die vandaag online is gezet.
Jarenlang zijn medische onderzoekers op zoek geweest naar de
biologische oorzaak van ME/CVS, maar steeds zonder resultaat.
Afgelopen oktober kondigden Amerikanen een doorbraak aan:
onderzoekers van het Whittemore-Peterson Institute (WPI) in Reno
vonden bij een groot aantal patiŽnten met ME/CVS het retrovirus
XMRV. Het onderzoek werd gepubliceerd in het vooraanstaande
wetenschappelijke tijdschrift Science, na een onderzoektraject van
Onderzoekers van het UMC St. Radboud hadden twijfels en besloten
het Science-onderzoek te herhalen, met Nederlands ingevroren bloed
uit 1991-1992. Het onderzoek vond razendsnel plaats onder leiding
van de Nijmeegse experimenteel viroloog dr. Frank van Kuppeveld en
internist prof. dr. Jos van der Meer. Maar ze vonden niks. ďNoch
in het bloed van de 32 patiŽnten, noch in dat van de 43 controles
werd het retrovirus aangetroffenĒ, meldde het UMC St. Radboud
eind februari in een persbericht.
Inmiddels blijkt dat daarbij zaken zijn verzwegen. Deze
week werd een brief openbaar van Annette Whittemore, die leiding
geeft aan het WPI. Daarin meldt zij dat het WPI, op verzoek van
Frank Van Kuppeveld, enkele bloedmonsters uit het Nederlandse
onderzoekscohort heeft getest voordat de Nijmeegse studie werd
voltooid. Het WPI vond hierin sporen van XMRV. Whittemore
zegt over emailcorrespondentie te beschikken die aantoont dat Van
Kuppeveld op de hoogte was van deze WPI-onderzoeksresulaten voordat
de Nederlandse studie werd gepubliceerd in de British Medical
webpublicatie van Ortho geeft een reconstructie van de
gebeurtenissen, op basis van onder andere een interview met dr. Judy
Mikovits, onderzoeksdirecteur van het WPI. De webpublicatie valt
samen met de verschijning van het
aprilnummer van Ortho, waarin eveneens aandacht wordt besteed
How many tens or hundreds or perhaps even more Dutchmen have professor
Jos van der Meer and professor Gijs Bleijenberg driven to suicide? My own
medical specialists agree with me that it must be many tens at least over
the past 20 year: See
Studies in MEdical Sadism - 1: "Die MŲrder sind unter uns"
ME: Unsere Doktoren in Europa - Ohne WŲrter.
These are doctors Mengele; these are sadists; these are liars: They ought
to be punished as severely as possible and pay large restitutions to
every one they maltreated and to the families of every Dutch patient with
ME they helped drive to suicide by their cruel sadistic pseudo-scientific
lies. They ought to be in prison, and all their money should be taken
from them, to pay damages to all those whose lives and careers they
intentionally, sadistically, maliciously, lyingly destroyed.
P.S. I have written prof.dr. Jos van der Meer a
long very clear very polite letter in 1988, after first hearing of
ME, explaining that both my ex-wife and I had it since January
1979, and that we were both highly gifted persons, close to our
M.A.'s in psychology, and asked him for an appointment and help.
The medical mass-murdering dr. Mengele-Van der Meer
did not even reply. Speaking for myself, with my background,
of real Dutch resistance-heroes, survivors and victims of the
German concentration-camps, I have always been in favour of the
death-penalty, because I concluded from reading the many books
about concentration-camps my parents had and seeing the pictures
made there, that there really are Untermenschen, namely
folks who organized and ruled these camps, and indulged their
utterly sickening sadism there like Dr. Mengele.
Their human equivalents - and let it be interposed
here that every Dutchman but my family and the family of
Queen Beatrix, it seems, believes or at least publicly pretended
the last 40 years and indeed has been told for all these 40 years
in all institutions of Dutch education, from kindergarten till
university, that all human beings, from Eichmann till Einstein,
are equivalent to one another, a
piece of raving insane levelling that I can only explain by
assuming the vast majority of Dutchmen have no selfrespect
whatsoever, and have indeed very little to respect in themselves,
being mostly alcoholic moron who spend as much of their parasitic
lives as they can with watching soccer and TV and being drunk, and
who believe themselves to be the equals of fascists, because like
Orwell's animals they could not stand that anyone might excel in
anything but beastly things like sports or politics, which indeed
many Dutchmen do believe, as the large following of the
proto-fascists Fortuyn and Wilders showed and shows...
... so, to repeat: the human equivalents of Dr.
Mengele are professors at the University of Nijmegen at present,
and as the Dutch saying is, have been treading their ways over the
corpses of maltreated, defamed, denigrated Dutch ME-patients
during more than 20 years.
What obscene degenerate Untermenschen hide their
bestiality behind a human face or in a medical frock!!
P.P.S. It may be I'll stop Nederlog for a while.
The reason is that I am physically not well at all, and it seems a
heath-wave is coming, which is the type of weather I can't handle
well. I don't know yet, but if there is no Nederlog, now you know

me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!
No change, no pause, no hope! Yet I endure.
I ask the Earth, have not the mountains felt?
I ask yon Heaven, the all-beholding Sun,
Has it not seen? The Sea, in storm or calm,
Heaven's ever-changing Shadow, spread below,
Have its deaf waves not heard my agony?
Ah me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!"

(*) In fact, I will be very pleased to
appear in court, dressed in the concentration-camp clothes of my
father and grandfather, with a Davidstar and a red triangle, and speak
the truth about the postmodern generation of the complete
equivalents (I was taught at the University of Amsterdam) of
doctor Mengele himself (if they are not much worse, since they
cannot plead a war or a dictatorship in exoneration:
A Wessely really loves torturing people).
So yes: I really like to discuss the implications of my
disease, of 32 years of maltreatment by Amsterdam fascists and
terrorists posing as Jews and Socialists but working for the Amsterdam
drugsmafia or destroying the universities in order to make demented
assholes like them "leading academics", and of my experiences with ME
and my present knowledge the amazing,
insane medieval utter bullshit a Wessely, a Van der Meer, a White and
a Bleijenberg dare spout, as if we are back at the Middle
