Newborn mice were infected intracerebrally with abacterial cultures of the GL strain of Tetrahymena pyriformis, induced experimentally six years ago in vitro with Coxsackie B-5 virus. In the brain of the test animals there were pathologic changes similar to those found in the primary investigation of the pathogenicity of this strain, i.e., after 96 h of contact with the virus. Thus, the pathogenicity acquired by T. pyriformis, as well as the persistence of Coxsackie B-5 virus in this ciliate… CONTINUE READING
