Ribavirin was found to inhibit five strains of HVH/2 tested in KB cells with the M1C range being 10-100 microgram/ml. In a mouse tail animal model, it effectively reduced HVH/2-induced lesions particularly at the peak lesion periods. Ribavirin was remarkably effective when intravaginal treatment was initiated late in the infection, which suggests that it may have potential for treatment of human cutaneous infections.

Ribavirin and Inosiplex: A Review of their Present Status in Viral Diseases
TLDR
The accumulated evidence has indicated that inosiplex is more a prohost agent rather than an antiviral drug, and its potential place in chemotherapy should not be neglected, although further data are needed to determine what this place will be. Expand
Ribavirin: A clinical overview
TLDR
Ribavirin emerges as the first antiviral drug that is able to reduce mortality in a highly lethal systemic disease by more than 90%. Expand
Potent Adjuvant Activity of Cationic Liposome-DNA Complexes for Genital Herpes Vaccines
TLDR
Cationic liposome-DNA complexes (CLDC) appears to be a potent adjuvant for HSV vaccines and should be evaluated further. Expand

Resistance to herpes simplex type 2 virus induced by an immunopotentiator (pyran) in immunosuppressed mice.
TLDR
The results suggest a possible role for immunopotentiator-activated macrophages in the increased resistance afforded mice by treatment with pyran in protecting both normal or TXB mice against lethal infection with the herpes virus. Expand

TLDR
Synergistic interaction of BCG immunization and treatment with SAS produced the greatest degree of protection in mice challenged intravaginally with HVH2, whereas a single 0.5-ml intravenous injection of SAS provided significant protection. Expand

TLDR
Parallel experiments indicated Virazole to have at least a comparable degree of activity, and it was also active against a wider variety of viruses than any of these known active materials. Expand
Effect of herpesvirus type 2 and hormonal imbalance on the uterine cervix of the mouse.
TLDR
Results suggest that, at least in these three animals, HSV-2 may have a role in tumor induction and progesterone has been found to exert a protective effect against chemical carcinogens in the mouse cervix. Expand

TLDR
Evidence has been obtained that the newborn mouse becomes infected with herpes simplex virus on passage through the infected birth canal of the mother mouse and differentiate herpes strains obtained from human genital lesions from strains recovered from nongenital sites. Expand
Use of disposable micro tissue culture plates for antiviral and interferon induction studies.
TLDR
A reproducible test system requiring small amounts of test compound was developed for evaluating antiviral and interferon-inducing activity and known active compounds evaluated in this microplate system had activity similar to that seen in macro in vitro systems. Expand
