Induction of γ‐Interferon by Avarol in Human Peripheral Blood Lymphocytes

Abstract

Avarol is a cytostatic and anti-human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) agent. In this study, the avarol caused induction of gamma-interferon (IFN-gamma) in buffy coat cells (human peripheral blood lymphocytes) is demonstrated by immunological and molecular biological techniques. IFN-gamma production was detected after a 24-hr incubation period with avarol… (More)
