Abstract

SUMMARY

A sensitive immunoradiometric assay for murine interferon (MulFN-) has been developed and used reproducibly to measure low levels of MulFN- in lung lavage samples from influenza-infected mice. In control infected mice, IFN- peaked on day 6, but transfer of virus-specific cytotoxic T cells or T helper cells, which reduced virus replication in infected hosts, resulted in an earlier peak on day 4.
