In Vitro Effect of Human Interferon-Gamma on Sister Chromatid Exchange Frequency and Proliferation of Cultured Human Amniotic Fluid Cells
With its improved availability, interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) has become increasingly interesting for therapeutic approaches. Up to now IFN-α and ß have mainly been used in clinical trials to treat severe viral infections and certain malignant diseases. An increasing number of clinical studies is appearing concerning IFN-γ. The IFN-γ gene contains introns and has no homology with IFN-α and ß, the classical or type 1 interferons.
