A vaccine strain of respiratory syncytial (RS) virus and an isolate from pneumonic calves (AC2) were inoculated onto cultures of bovine alveolar macrophages recovered by lung lavage, and the functional properties of the cells observed over a period of 10 days. In most cultures no infectious virus was produced although immunofluorescence indicated the presence of virus antigens in some cells. No significant difference was noted between infected and control macrophage cultures in their capacity… CONTINUE READING
