The effects of hepatitis B virus (HBV) on established human cell lines of various tissue origins were evaluated by clonal or colorimetric assays in methylcellulose culture. HBV exposure inhibited the growth of six hemopoietic cell lines, while similar incubation did not affect the growth of seven nonhemopoietic carcinoma cell lines of breast, colon, liver, and stomach origin. The inhibition of hemopoietic cell line colony formation was dependent on the presence of intact viral (Dane) particles… CONTINUE READING
