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… Expand

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. Expand
The Simian Viruses
TLDR
The extensive use of the techniques of tissue culture during the past 15 years has permitted the isolation of many new viral agents both from man and lower animals, but it frequently was difficult to determine whether or not the virus isolated was the cause of the illness. Expand
MECHANISMS OF PERSISTENT AND MASKED INFECTIONS IN TISSUE CULTURE
  • W. Ackermann
  • Medicine
  • Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 1957
TLDR
The aim of this presentation is to consider what relation these in vitro systems bear to the phenomenon described by Rowe and Hull and their associates, and to the problem of recurring infections and persisting immunity, on the other. Expand
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. Expand
DEFINITION AND OUTLINE OF CONTEMPORARY INFORMATION ON THE ADENOVIRUS GROUP
TLDR
While adenoviruses have been propagated in a variety of tissues, HeLa cell cultures provide the most sensitive and practical tissue for virus isolation, and the KB7* cell is the most satisfactory tissue for the production of high-titer virus and complement-f ixing antigens. Expand
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. Expand

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. Expand
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.

TLDR
Studies of synovial cell cultures were designed to examine growth patterns, nuclear, and other cytological changes, as well as the development of spontaneous degeneration, in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Expand
Relationship of Adenovirus to Lymphocytes in Naturally Infected Human Tonsils and Adenoids
TLDR
The results suggest that lymphocytes in tonsils and adenoids may be naturally infected with adenovirus and that, in positive cultures, at least 1 of every 10 cells harbors virus or viral precursor at initiation of the cultures. Expand
