THE therapeutic effect of sodium magnesium-chlorophylliu in patients with herpes simplex and herpes zoster1 has aroused our interest in the mechanism of its viricidal activity. In the case of herpetic keratitis, locally applied sodium magnesium-chlorophyllin is as effective as kericid1 (Smith, Kline and French Ltd, iodoxuridine 0.1 per cent, thiomersal 0.002 per cent in distilled water). Sodium magnesium-chlorophyllin isolated from conifer needles is active against viruses of the herpes group, vaccinia virus and myxoviruses (influenza A2 virus and Newcastle disease virus). Unlike sodium magnesium-chlorophyllin and a derivative of sodium-chlorophyllin in which the molecule lacks the metal atom in the centre of the por-phyrin ring, sodium-chlorophyllin with a copper atom in the centre of the porphyrin ring has not shown viricidal activity2.
