From: Antiviral effects of nisin, lysozyme, lactoferrin and their mixtures against bovine viral diarrhoea virus

  nisin lysozyme lactoferrin
CC50 167.275 ± 5.127 9.25 ± 0.836 4.907 ± 0.845
EC50 11.916 ± 2.547 0.516 ± 0.312 0.29 ± 0.233
SI 14.0378 17.926 16.92
  1. Nisin concentrations in μg/mL, lysozyme and lactoferrin concentrations in mg/mL. CC50 (50% cytotoxic concentration) and EC50 values (50% effective concentration) expressed as means ± SD (standard deviation) for n = 3 independent experiments. CC50 and EC50 values were calculated using the ED50 Plus v1.0 online software. Selectivity indices (SI; ratio CC50/ EC50)
