Immunosuppression by canine distemper virus: modulation of in vitro immunoglobulin synthesis, interleukin release and prostaglandin E2 production.


In vitro or in vivo infection of canine mononuclear cells by canine distemper virus (CDV) in short-term microcultures resulted in suppression of lectin-induced 3H-thymidine incorporation. This suppressive effect was also evident in pokeweed mitogen-driven in vitro immunoglobulin synthesis and release. Lectin-induced interleukin-2 production by monocyte… (More)
