XMRV[edit | edit source]
Dr Mikovits led the team that published a paper suggesting a connection between the XMRV retrovirus and ME/CFS. The XMRV paper was later retracted in 2011. Dr. Mikovits participated in a large study in 2012 that indicated that there was no association between Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and either Xenotropic Murine Leukemia Virus-Related Virus or Polytropic Murine Leukemia Virus.
Arrest & lawsuit[edit | edit source]
Mikovits was fired from the WPI in 2011. After her departure there was a legal dispute, involving her arrest, with the WPI. Dr Mikovits' case against her critics was dismissed in February 2016.
Book - The Plague[edit | edit source]
In 2014 Dr Mikovits published a book called Plague about her experiences and research.
