Hi bullybeef...
I might be wrong about this but my understanding is that anti-virals can help to prove the cause of a disease...
If a group of patients are treated with anti-virals, and their viral load is successfully reduced, and there is a corresponding improvement in their symptoms, then this can be used as part of the evidence that the virus causes the disease.
Yes, an intended and common use for medications is diagnostics.
