Young adult ferrets were used as experimental animals to study subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE). When cells infected with cell-associated measles virus strains isolated from SSPE patients were inoculated intracerebrally (i.c.) into ferrets, they developed an acute encephalitis and died within 1 to 3 weeks without detectable antibody formation… (More)
