This test method uses a plaque reduction assay. It measures the extent to which various concentrations of acyclovir inhibit the growth of virus in cell culture. The concentration of drug which results in a 50% reduction in plaque formation induced by viral cytopathic effect (CPE) versus the no-drug control establishes an inhibitory dose (ID-50) drug concentration reportable value.
