Monocyte-derived inhibitor of interleukin 1 induced by human cytomegalovirus.


It has previously been shown that human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) can exert immunosuppressive effects, and it has been suggested that these may be mediated by monocytes, although the mechanism is unclear. We showed that infection of human monocytes with the AD169 strain of HCMV abrogates their production of interleukin 1 (IL-1) activity. This was associated… (More)
