Abstract

From 100 cases of gastroenteritis among children caused by adenovirus infection in Ontario, 33 virus isolates were divided into three categories according to their biological behavior in tissue cultures. So far, the results of neutralization tests, structural protein analysis, and DNA restriction patterns showed that the virus of category 1 was similar to adenovirus type 40. However, the adenovirus of category 2 was a distinct adenovirus which shared some similarities with adenovirus type 5. Viruses of category 3 are still under investigation.
