Abstract

SUMMARY

Treatment of adult mice with gold sodium thiomalate made the normally non-lethal Semliki Forest virus and Sindbis virus infections lethal and increased the virulence of Langat and West Nile viruses. These changes were associated with an enhanced virus invasion of the brain. Depression of the humoral antibody response was not observed.
