Abstract

SUMMARY

Infection of human embryonic fibroblast cell monolayers with neutral red and light-inactivated herpes simplex virus, type 2 (HSV-2) at supra-optimal temperature (42 °C) resulted in persistence of viable cells in suspension culture at 37 °C which have properties in common with virus transformed cells: formation of cell aggregates, HSV-2-specific antigens and colony formation in soft methyl cellulose medium. These data are consistent with the idea that photodynamic inactivated HSV-2 has potential oncogenic activity.
