Abstract

Halothane (2-bromo-2-chloro-1,1,1-trifluoroethane) inhibited herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) replication, although HSV-1 DNA was synthesized at normal levels in Vero cells. Viral capsids and extracellular virions were inhibited, and HSV-1 protein synthesis decreased by 50%, although no specific HSV-1 protein failed to be synthesized. Hyperbaric pressure failed to reverse the halothane-induced inhibition of HSV-1 replication.
