The pathogenesis of Cache Valley virus in the ovine fetus
Using immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization, intense CVV viral antigenic signal was detected in the brain, spinal cord, skeletal muscles and fetal membranes of infected fetuses and Viral signal decreased in targeted and infected tissues with the progression of the infection.


Interference mediated by a variant of Sindbis virus. II. Actinomycin D-sensitive interference in the absence of interferon.
It is suggested that the mechanism of interference by ALP is mediated by an intracellular precursor of interferon (preinterferon), which has the antiviral properties of Interferon but is not detectable extracellularly.
Studies on persistent infections of tissue cultures. I. General aspects of the system.
Prolonged treatment of persistently infected cultures by addition of specific antiviral immune sera to the media reduced significantly the amount of virus present and the degree of resistance to VSV, however, upon removal of the sera after as many as 187 days of treatment the viruses reappeared in all but one instance.
Intrinsic Interference: a New Type of Viral Interference
The hemadsorption-negative plaque test has revealed a new type of viral interference, termed intrinsic interference, which appears to involve a step in the NDV growth cycle beyond that of viral attachment, entry, and eclipse.
Group C, a new serological group of hitherto undescribed arthropod-borne viruses. Immunological studies.
Five distinct, hitherto undescribed arthropod-borne viruses have been characterized from among more than 70 strains isolated from man, sentinel animals and mosquitoes in the forested area around Belem, Para, Brazil and constitute a new antigenic group to which the name, group C, has been given.
The isolation of arthropod-borne viruses, including members of two hitherto undescribed serological groups, in the Amazon region of Brazil.
Summary Arthropod-borne virus studies have been in progress for more than 4 years in a small region with tropical rain forest climate in the Belem area of the Amazon Valley. Here, 451 strains have
