Antiviral activity of mixed-valence rare earth borotungstate heteropoly blues against influenza virus in mice.
The acute and accumulated toxicity of the rare earth borotungstate heteropoly blues, HPB-2, Ce2H3[BW9(VI)W2(V)Mn(H2O)O39].12H2O, which is active against influenza virus in Kunming mice, were investigated in Kunming mice following oral and intraperitoneal administration. The activity of HPB-2 against influenza virus (FM1) in the mice was then investigated. HPB-2, given either orally (p.o.) or intraperitoneally (i.p.), was shown to have activity. HPB-2 was shown to be more effective than the positive control, ribavirin, and it was also found that i.p. administration was more effective than p.o. administration.
