The Virus That Links Prostate Cancer & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

By Jacob Goldstein

“For a few years now, researchers have been looking at what role a virus called XMRV plays in prostate cancer. A study published today in Science suggests the virus may also be linked to chronic fatigue syndrome. But the picture is still cloudy, and it’s not clear whether the virus actually causes prostate cancer or CFS.”
