INJECTION of susceptible mice with a marine leukaemia virus markedly affects the immune response. A number of recent studies have demonstrated that mice infected with either Friend or Rauscher leukaemia disease viruses have a marked immunological deficiency, as demonstrated by challenge immunization with a variety of antigens1–16. Many of these studies have… CONTINUE READING
