SINCE the observation by Graves1 that swine vesicular disease virus (SVDV)2 is neutralised by antiserum to coxsackie B5 (CB5) virus, an enterovirus infecting man, and observations3 that the swine virus can also infect man, there has been speculation about the relationship between the two viruses and the possible role of CB5 virus in the aetiology of the swine disease4. Further work has shown that the two viruses can be differentiated by neutralisation tests and also that there has been… CONTINUE READING
