- "Rimantadine, ribavirin, and 6-mercapto-9-(tetrahydro-2-furyl)purine, administered intraperitoneally every 8 h for 7 days starting minutes after virus challenge, had no effect on survival and mean survival time of BALB/c mice inoculated intracranially with dengue virus type 2. In contrast, intraperitoneal treatment with ribavirin 2',3',5'-triacetate, a lipophilic analog of ribavirin, effected significant increases in both mean survival time and survival rate, suggesting that ribavirin 2',3',5'-triacetate may be superior to rabavirin for treatment of viral diseases of the brain.
