Abstract

SUMMARY

Using the sero-conversion test Sendai virus was shown to transmit rapidly in specific pathogen-free (SPF) mice. Transmission of virus was closely related to the titre in nasal tissue of one infector. The transmitted virus grew without any preferential distribution in the respiratory tissues and gradually disappeared within 2 weeks of contact infection. Under our experimental conditions direct contact with the infector was the most important factor in transmission.
