Experimental Methods for Clinical Practice


It is found that herpetic keratoconjunctivitis in rabbits and generalized herpes infection in humans is associated with virus-specific arterial damage. Experiments on rabbits show that virus-induced morphological changes in the aorta can be corrected with furavir. The role of herpes infection as a possible risk factor in atherogenesis is considered.
