PURPOSE Propranolol, a beta-adrenergic antagonist, has been shown to block hyperthermically-induced ocular recurrence of HSV-1 in mice and reduce spontaneous ocular viral shedding and herpetic corneal lesions in latently infected rabbits. The present study was performed to determine the effect of propranolol on epinephrine iontophoresis-induced ocular recurrence and immunosuppression-induced ocular recurrence in the rabbit eye model. METHODS New Zealand white rabbits were infected with HSV-1… CONTINUE READING
