Abstract

SUMMARY

Potent preparations of bovine leucocyte and fibroblast interferons had substantial antiviral activity on monkey cells and low activity on human cells. Thus, interferon from a ‘lower’ phylogenetic species can have considerable antiviral activity in primate cells, but not all primate cells are equally sensitive.
