In laboratory tests on cell cultures, the drug appears to have antiviral properties, particularly against human enteroviruses, a genus of potential killers that includes poliovirus." "One compound,fluoxetine, stood out. In a series of follow-up laboratory tests on virus samples, the researchers found that fluoxetine interferes with the growth and replication of coxsackieviruses, a prominent subtype of enteroviruses. "No one could have expected this antiviral propertya priori," Damoiseaux told LiveScience. The researchers repeated the experiment on several kinds of coxsackieviruses with similar, successful results. Without being able to reproduce, theseinvading virusessimply would die off."
