    sorry if this has been picked up already
    AIDS drugs fight prostate cancer-linked virus, U. scientists say

    AIDS drugs blocked a virus linked to prostate cancer and chronic fatigue syndrome, a study showed.
    Mercks Isentress fought the virus, XMRV, more powerfully than 44 other anti-HIV compounds tested against the pathogen in laboratory experiments, according to researchers from the University of Utah and Emory University. GlaxoSmithKlines Retrovir and Gilead Sciencess Viread also prevented XMRV from replicating, according to a statement from Emory Thursday.
