Interferon inhibits Aspergillus fumigatus growth in mice: an activity against an extracellular infection.

Abstract

Prophylactic treatment of mice with interferon (IFN) or polyinosinic-polycytidylic acid [poly(I:C)], an IFN inducer, provided significant protection against an extracellular infection by Aspergillus fumigatus in both Swiss and Swiss athymic nude mice. Tunicamycin (TM) treatment inhibits the antifungal activity of IFN and poly(I:C) in these mice. Anti-asialo… (More)
