Cell Culture Studies
Cell cultures tests were performed using standard MDCK cells exposed to Enterovirus-71, a potentially lethal intestinal virus. The first photo shows normal, uninfected cells seen through the microscope. The second picture shows the type of cytopathic damage that occurs when virus particles enter cells and replicate. The last picture shows how cells exposed to the same level of virus are protected when Apogen® is present. No viral cytopathic damage is observed and cells continue to function normally.
Journal of Medical Virology
Scientific studies published in the Journal of Medical Virology 70:119-125 (2003), shows the Allophycocyanin (APC) is the effective ingredient of Apogen® to inhibit Enterovirus.
