Abstract

SUMMARY: Heat inactivation curves of vaccinia virus between 50° and 60° indicate that the virus is heterogeneous in its heat sensitivity. The proportion of heat-resistant particles varies inversely with the temperature of exposure. The inactivation of heat-sensitive virus is temperature dependent and seems to be a first-order reaction, while the heat-resistant fraction is inactivated at a constant slow rate unrelated to temperature over the range 50°-60°.
