Abstract

SUMMARY

The guanine derivative 9-(2-hydroxyethoxymethyl) guanine (acycloguanosine), a potent inhibitor of herpes simplex virus (HSV) multiplication, was found to have marked anticellular activity against HSV-transformed thymidine kinase-positive cells. HSV type 1-transformed cells were more sensitive to the drug than HSV type 2-transformed cells.
