Description

Addition of tromantadine after virus penetration inhibited HSV-1 induced syncytium formation and virus production in HEp-2 and VERO cells and acted additively with neutralizing antibody in blocking virus spread and cytopathology. Inhibition of syncytium formation in VERO cells infected with 0.01 pfu/cell of
