Interferon function is not required for recovery from a secondary poxvirus infection
IFN function is critical for recovery from most primary viral infections, including poxvirus infection. In contrast, very little is known about the requirement for IFN function in mediating recovery from a secondary virus infection. We have used ectromelia virus (EOV), an orthopoxvirus very closely related to variola virus, to investigate the importance of IFN function in recovery from a secondary infection. Variola virus, the causative agent of smallpox in humans, and ECTV, which causes...[Show more]
