OBJECTIVE To study temporal changes in amounts of viral DNA in blood leukocytes over long periods, and to determine whether severity of the disease is greater in experimentally induced, compared with natural, infection. ANIMALS 18 naturally and 6 experimentally infected black mink; 26 naturally infected brown mink. PROCEDURE Polymerase chain reaction amplification to detect viral DNA in blood and counter-immune electrophoresis to detect serum antibody were performed at regular intervals… CONTINUE READING
