Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Random-bred fetal and 4-week-old american lambs, inoculated intracerebrally with visna virus, developed a persistent infection in the brain and sometimes in the lung. The pathologic changes present in these lambs were similar to the early lesions of visna in icelandic sheep, thus providing a possible model for the study of virus-induced demyelinating disease.
