Summary 1. From the present evidence it appears that an unidentified, possibly new, tissue culture cytopathogenic agent has been isolated repeatedly from human adenoids undergoing spontaneous degeneration in tissue culture. The filter ability and the inability to cultivate the agent on bacteriological media and to demonstrate organisms in stained tissue culture preparations would indicate that the agent belongs to the group of viruses or rickettsial It is tentatively proposed to designate the…

Endogenous agents in primary cell cultures with special reference to latent viruses
TLDR
It is shown that viruses are commonly found as endogenous agents in these cultures, and screening of animals by testing for the presence of neutralizing antibody was not an effective procedure in selecting virus-free animals for cell culture purposes.
The Molecular Biology of Adenoviruses
TLDR
The adenovirus group now has over 90 members with more than 40 distinct isolates of human origin, and these viruses all share a common group specific antigen which is the exon virion subunit or virion surface capsid.
The nature of adenovirus persistence in human adenoid vegetations
TLDR
Ninety-seven adenoid vegetations originating from children aged 2 to 11 years were examined for the presence of adenoviruses, and Adenovirus-neutralizing substances were only rarely detected in extracts from virus-negative AV.

TLDR
The results of studies to date on certain cultural characteristics of these cells, including their viral range, morphology, and growth rates are records as a progress report.
A REPORT ON THE ATTEMPTED ISOLATION OF THE VIRUS OF TRACHOMA*†
TLDR
Various attempts made to isolate the virus in three different areas of the world are given, namely in Jordan and in Gambia where the disease is endemic and a large proportion of the population is infected, and in London, where occasional cases were seen in the outpatient departments of Moorfields Hospital.
Studies on an unidentified group of cytopathic agents

TLDR
Nine cytopathic agents are described which were isolated in tissue culture from the stools of cases with pharyngitis with tonsillitis and cervical lymphadenopathia, one from a paralytic case probably contemporaneously in fected with polio type 1 and the possible relations of the agents to the clinical symptoms encountered are briefly discussed.
Acanthamoeba castellanii is not be an adequate model to study human adenovirus interactions with macrophagic cells
TLDR
This study intended in this study to compare the interactions between a human adenovirus strain and A. castellanii or THP-1 macrophagic cells to show that this amoebal model is not relevant to explore the relationships betweenAdenoviruses and macrophages in in vitro experiments.
Adenoviruses in Lymphocytes of the Human Gastro-Intestinal Tract
TLDR
Adenoviral DNA is highly prevalent in lymphocytes from the gastro-intestinal tract indicating that adenoviruses may be part of the normal gut flora.
