In a retrospective study of neoplasms in Equidae pre;ented to the Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory, Purdue University, from Jan 1, 1970, to Dec 31, 1974, data were compiled on numbers and anatomic sites of neoplasms as well as on age, sex, and breed of subjects from which the neoplasms were taken. During this 5-year period, 21 neoplasms were diagnosed(More)
A line of cells (IP-3), persistently infected with defective measles virus, was developed from co-cultures of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis-derived brain cells with monkey kidney cells (BSC-1). The line, carried for more than 45 serial passages, produced neither infectious virus nor hemagglutinin. Cultures consistently displayed a cycling focal(More)
A sequential study of the virus-intestinal cell interactions in the small intestinal mucosa of intact pigs and surgically isolated loops of jejunum was made using the Purdue strain of TGE virus. The different phases of the infection were examined by immunofluorescence, histopathology and measurement of virus production. Viral replication occurred only in(More)
Measles virus isolated from the brain of a 12-year-old boy with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis caused a chronic, progressive encephalitis in experimentally infected rhesus monkeys. The infection was eventually fatal in spite of pre-existing measles immunity and a vigorous secondary antibody response in serum and cerebrospinal fluid of the infected(More)
THE FLUORESCENT ANTIBODY (FA) TEST FOR THE DIAGNOSIS OF FIELD OUTBREAKS OF TRANSMISSIBLE GASTROENTERITIS (TGE) IN BABY PIGS WAS COMPARED TO OTHER AVAILABLE MEANS INCLUDING: virus isolation by inoculation of test pigs, intestinal lesions especially villous atrophy, and clinical observations. Immunofluorescent tests were done on frozen sections of the small(More)
