Using antiserum against a particular strain of bovine viral diarrhea virus, the strains of hog cholera virus were divided into two groups, H and B, on the basis of the difference in the degree of neutralization. Group H consisted of strains reacting poorly in neutralization, and group B Consisted of strains reacting well with bovine viral diarrhea antiserum. Most of the strains of group H induced a typical clinical form of hog cholera in experimentally infected pigs. Inoculation of pigs with a… CONTINUE READING
