Abstract:

The report presents the results of viremia in mice experimentally infected with the Venezuelan equine encephalomyelitis virus. It is shown that the greater acceptability to infection with this virus is expressed in a higher degree of viremia. It is established that the greater levels of viremia coincide with maximum content of interferon in the blood. In absolute terms, the production of interferon in suckling mice was lower than in mature mice, although titer of virus in the blood as scklings was considerably higher than in adult mice. In this paper, the conditions for the effects of interferon on neurovirus infection in the viremia phase are considered.
