Suppressive effects of a cyanine dye against herpes simplex virus (HSV)-1 infection.


In this study, we demonstrate that a cyanine dye, lumin, significantly suppressed cytopathic effect by herpes simplex virus (HSV)-1 toward human amnionic FL cell and also it reduced replication of HSV-1 in a dose-dependent manner. In addition, lumin additively augmented the antiviral effect of interferon (IFN)-alpha. Furthermore, fluorescence microscopic… (More)
