Effect of 6-MFA, an interferon inducer of fungal origin having antiviral activity, was investigated on the functions of macrophages during dengue virus (DV) infection. It was observed that treatment of mice with 6-MFA abrogated the DV induced depression of attachment and phagocytosis of opsonized sheep erythrocytes by the peritoneal macrophages. This effect appears to be mediated by interferon. 6-MFA had no effect on the outcome of infection.
