Abstract

Summary: Rowson-Parr virus (RPV), which causes lymphoma in Balb/c mice and also depresses the splenic haemolytic plaque-forming cell response to sheep erythrocytes, greatly exacerbates infections caused by two murine species. One of these, , infects mature erythrocytes and the other, , infects mainly reticulocytes. Mice infected with RPV and either showed a similar degree of reticulocytosis to those which received the alone. Antiplasmodial antibody was much higher in mice which received alone than in those also infected with RPV.
