Abstract

SUMMARY

type 1 (HSV-1) was isolated from fallopian-tube biopsies of two women who were using an intra-uterine contraceptive device; the strains were isolated on different dates and at different hospitals. Both the isolates were shown to be HSV-1 by restriction-enzyme analysis, polypeptide profiles and indirect immunofluorescence; the two isolates could not be distinguished by these tests, but the tests distinguished them from HSV-1 strain 71-15 and HSV-2 strain 333. The viruses were again isolated from samples of fallopiantube tissue stored in liquid nitrogen, and their polypeptide and restriction-enzyme profiles were the same as those of the initial isolates. Virus was not isolated from fallopian-tube samples obtained from other IUD patients undergoing surgery at the same two hospitals at the same time.
