ANIMAL INOCULATION - TYPES OF CULTIVATION OF HUMAN VIRUSES

 

Some animals (e.g. rodents, primates) have to be used to culture certain viruses in order to study antiviral and vaccine effectiveness, and also as a source of cell lines for cell cultures. The use of animals follows strict ethical guidelines and is extremely expensive. A number of controls ensuring that the animals are free from diseases must be observed. Where animals are used to grow viruses or to test an antiviral or vaccine, growth of the virus is indicated by signs of disease or death.
