As we recognize that mephenesinpropyleneglycol is clinically useful for the treatment of influenza, we wish to know by which mechanism influenza cases cure with mephenesinpropyleneglycol. At first we study on inactivation of influenza virus with mephenesinpropyleneglycol by tissu-culture method, egg-culture method and by mice-inoculation test. The experiments indicate that the drug has weak ability of inactivation of virus when we use the tissue-culture and the egg-culture and that, in the case of mice, it has no apparent ability of inactivation of virus.
It may be said that the cure of influenza with mephenesin depends on any other factor than inactivation of influenza virus.
