Selected Quotes:

The virus was found in both normal and tumor tissue, which suggests that XMRV infection "may precede and possibly participate in the process of tumorigenesis," the researchers note.
"Our data support a hypothesis that XMRV is endemic to North America," they conclude. "However, further investigation into the association of XMTV with prostate cancer and other human disease is needed."
