Table 11 Comparisons of the selectivity index (SI) of antiviral activity on RSV between prophylactic (IVR) and virucidal (DVI) at best time for MBS extract and between that of MBS extract and the standard drug (Ribavirin)

From: Novel antiviral activity of mung bean sprouts against respiratory syncytial virus and herpes simplex virus −1: an in vitro study on virally infected Vero and MRC-5 cell lines

Extract Protocol vs Protocol Time vs Time SI vs SI P value  
MBS aIVR vs bDVI 1 h vs 1 h 12.82 ± 0.23 vs 14.18 ± 0.54 0.04 Significant
MBS vs Ribavirin aIVR vs aIVR 1 h vs 1 h 12.82 ± 0.23 vs 21.95 ± 2.12 0.006 Significant
MBS vs Ribavirin bDVI vs bDVI 1 h vs 1 h 14.18 ± 0.54 vs 23.39 ± 2.44 0.01 Significant
  1. Note: aIVR: the inhibition in virus infection after specific cell treatment. bDVI: the direct virus inactivation
