Prophylactic effect of a Beta vulgaris extract on experimental influenza infection in mice.

Abstract

An aqueous Beta vulgaris extract was repeatedly administered to mice by intranasal (i.n.) instillation, prior to i.n. inoculation of influenza virus A/PR/8/34 (H1N1). The extract conferred a partial protection against the experimental influenza infection: there was a significant decrease in the hemagglutination titers recorded in mouse lung homogenates, a decrease in mortality rate and an increase in the mean survival time as compared with the untreated, virus-inoculated controls.
