Xenotropic Murine leukemia virus-Related Virus (XMRV)

Xenotropic Murine Leukemia Virus

XMRV is a newly discovered retrovirus that has been associated with prostate cancer and chronic fatigue syndrome. Researchers and drug development companies are working to find drugs that inhibit this virus. VIRAPUR has developed a cell-based proliferation assay that can be used to test potential anti-XMRV compounds in vitro. The assay gives quantifiable results and is repeatable, high throughput and rapid. The IC50 of a compound can be determined with this assay.
