Inhibition of Herpes Simplex Virus by Normal Serum: Its Relationship to the Properdin System
Preview not available

Abstract

Eight strains of herpes virus were found to be sensitive to an inhibitor in normal rat serum which appears to be identical with the properdin system. Resistance to the inhibitor could not be developed in a limited series of passages through the inhibitory system. The possible role of the properdin system in resistance to manifestations of herpes virus infection was considered.
