#104~ PROTEST: McClure in USA- CFS "NIH" SEP

 Please feel free to copy and paste this letter or any part of it to send to anyone you want. 

Please send this letter below to Kathleen Sebelius, Francis Collins, Dennis Mangan, Dr. Anthony Scarpa ( CSR Director),

If you are in the USA then ~
also send it to your two US Senators from your state and your Congressional Representative.

You can see discussion of this issue here:,5276.0.html



Myra McClure, Ph.D. has been appointed to membership on the Center for Scientific Review, Special Emphasis Panel, ZRG1 CFSH80 2/22/2011-2/23/2011 meeting.

I protest this appointment for the following reasons:

1)  Dr. McClure is not a United States Citizen.  Why should a United Kingdom resident be deciding which applicants receive research grants in the United States?  In addition to questions of legality which arise from this, there are further questions of expense, since Dr. McClure's travel expenses will, of necessity, be higher than those of a United States resident.

2)  Dr. McClure has publicly stated that she has no interest in research in the area of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
    “Nothing on God’s Earth could persuade me to do more research on CFS.” 
Source is this article
    3) Dr. McClure has publicly stated that she is biased as to study of the XMRV retrovirus, which is an 
    "active area of research in the area of  Chronic Fatigue Syndrome."

    "Professor McClure was a co-author of the paper published in Plos One in January 2010 titled, “Failure to Detect the Novel Retrovirus XMRV in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.” As the paper’s name suggests, this study found no evidence of XMRV or MLV in CFS patients or controls. This study can be found here:
                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Professor McClure has publicly stated on many occasions that there is a high possibility that "the XMRV/MLV related virus findings being implicated in CFS are a consequence of contamination."

She fits NONE of the Requirements shown in the NIH site:  "Fairness and objectivity" the most important criteria, which we all know she does not have.
I ask that Dr. McClure be removed from this committee and that a qualified retrovirologist who is a resident of the United States be appointed instead.


Wanda Jones' name has been removed from this list because she has replied to an email saying her position at the Office of the HHS Secretary has nothing to do with the SEP Committee.

Let's send HER a copy also just for grins ;-)
