B7 costimulation plays a major role in herpes simplex virus (HSV) immunity. Effects of immunoregulatory cytokines (interferon-gamma [IFN-gamma] and interleukin-10 [IL-10]) and HSV antigens on B7-1 (CD80) and B7-2 (CD86) expression on monocytes during HSV-2 infection were investigated using flow cytometry. Our results demonstrate that HSV-2 infection effects… CONTINUE READING
