    Gerwyn: is it right that one can test positive for VIP serology test and not be infected?

    "AIDS drugs blocked a virus linked to prostate cancer and chronic fatigue syndrome, a study showed.

    Merck's 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. GlaxoSmithKline's Retrovir and Gilead Sciences's Viread also prevented XMRV from replicating, according to a statement from Emory Thursday."
