Measles virus was isolated from four cases of human measles 8 hours to 29 hours after the onset of exanthem when the washed leucocyte fraction of blood was employed as inoculum, but isolation was not obtained from the RBC or plasma components even with larger inocula. In one case, virus was isolated from all fractions of blood drawn at the onset of rash, but in significantly higher quantity from the WBC component.
