The inhibitory effects of interferon (IF) on the replication of varicella-zoster (VZ) virus in human foreskin fibroblast (HFF) cultures inoculated with infected cells or with cell-free virus were assayed by measuring (1) yields of infected cells, (2) plaques, (3) microfoci and (4) cytopathic effects. More IF was needed to reduce yields of infected cells at(More)
