emtracitabine, a reverse-transcriptase inhibitor (anti retroviral med) since the NIH/FDA/Harv paper came out, i have now heard the drug emtracitabine used twice. here it is in the ME Assoc statement: http://www.forums.aboutmecfs.org/sh...Summary-amp-Statement-on-Lo-Alter-et-al-Paper "The MEA has already pointed out on several occasions that this type of clinical trial would have to proceed with great care given the fact that ARTs can have serious side-effects. In the case of AZT, this drug can cause mitochondrial damage - which is obviously very relevant in ME/CFS. But there are other ARTs becoming available that appear to be active against XMRV and may be much safer to use (eg reverse-transcriptase inhibitors such as tenofovir and emtracitabine)." this medicine/drug, emtracitabine, was not mentioned in singh's paper on what meds stunted XMRV in the test tube (paper found here: http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0009948). that paper found that AZT, Raltegravir (Isentress), Tenofovir (Viread) helped stunt xmrv growth. Does anyone know anything about emtracitabine?
