Between 1969 and 1985, a total of 60 sheep died with lymphosarcoma. They were inoculated with BLV-positive blood from various donor cows, by various routes, at various ages, etc. A statistical analysis was performed trying to find a correlation between the length of the latency period and, on the other hand, one or more factors, such as sex, family… CONTINUE READING
