SUMMARY: The rate of utilization of amino-acids injected into the allantoic cavity of virus-infected eggs was studied by paper-strip chromatography.

Influenza virus brought about more rapid disappearance of amino-acids from the allantoic fluid than Mumps, Vaccinia or Lumpy Skin viruses or diphtheria and toxins. The utilization of amino-acids appears to be non-specific and not directly concerned with virus synthesis.
