alpha-Melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) is a potent inhibitory agent in all major forms of inflammation. To identify a potential mechanism of antiinflammatory action of alpha-MSH, we tested its effects on production of nitric oxide (NO), believed to be a mediator common to all forms of inflammation. We measured NO and alpha-MSH production in RAW(More)
Human adenovirus (HAdV) infections are increasingly frequent and potentially fatal as a disseminated disease in highly immunocompromised patients. Determining the in vitro sensitivity of HAdV to antiviral agents is not an easy task because HAdV CPE reduction assays are difficult to interpret and may take more than 1 week. We developed a phenotypic assay for(More)
