The pathogenesis of mousepox due to infection with ectromelia virus strain NIH-79 was characterized in genetically susceptible (BALB/cAnNCr) and genetically resistant (C57BL/6NCr) mice. BALB/c mice inoculated subcutaneous (s.c.) or intranasally (i.n.) had high mortality. Most mice died within 7 days from severe necrosis of the spleen and liver. Necrotic(More)
Multiple epizootics of typhlocolitis associated with high morbidity and mortality occurred among suckling mice in an arbovirology research laboratory. Affected mice had necrosis and hyperplasia of cecal, colonic, and less often, small intestinal mucosa. Epithelial syncytia were present throughout the affected areas. Other organs generally were not involved.(More)
Four genetic loci were tested for linkage with loci that control genetic resistance to lethal ectromelia virus infection in mice. Three of the loci were selected because of concordance with genotypes assigned to recombinant inbred (RI) strains of mice derived from resistant C57BL/6 and susceptible DBA/2 (BXD) mice on the basis of their responses to(More)
The incidence and duration of transmission of infection with ectromelia virus strain NIH-79 was tested in innately resistant (C57BL/6) and innately susceptible (BALB/c) inbred mice. Transmission by C57BL/6 index mice occurred through 3 weeks and by BALB/c index mice through 4 weeks, although the duration of infection in individual index mice was often(More)
The pathogenesis of sialodacryoadenitis was studied in gnotobiotic CD rats inoculated intranasally with the causal virus. Virus replication was detected sequentially in the nasopharynx, tracheobronchial tree, cervical lymph nodes, submaxillary and parotid salivary glands, exorbital gland, and Harderian gland. Acute rhinitis appeared within 2 days after(More)
The etiology of a transmissable colonic mucosal hyperplasia of mice was investigated. Hyperplasia was produced in mice inoculated with unfiltered colonic suspension from affected mice, but infectivity was lost after passage through a 0.45 mum filter. The etiologic agent was subsequently identified as a variant of Citrobacter freundii. The organism induced(More)
Adult C3H/RV mice were highly resistant and adult C3H/He mice were highly susceptible to lethal encephalitis after intraperitoneal inoculation of Banzi virus (flavivirus), but the infectivity of the virus was the same for both strains of mice. Yields of virus were similar from lymphoid tissues of C3H/He and C3H/RV adult mice, but titers of virus in the(More)
