Coxsackie B1 virus-induced murine myositis: relationship of disease severity to virus dose and antiviral antibody response.

Abstract

Inoculation of Coxsackie B1 virus (CB1) in newborn CD1 Swiss mice induces a chronic myositis of proximal hindlimb muscles (CB1 myositis). To study the possible role of the virus dose, and of antiviral antibodies in the development of CB1 myositis, we infected groups of newborn mice with six CB1 doses, ranging from 30 to 10,000 plaque forming units (pfu… (More)
