Inhibition of Multiplication of Foot and Mouth Disease Virus in Adult Mice pretreated with Freund's Complete Adjuvant


INCREASED resistance has been reported in certain virus infections after stimulation of the reticulo-endothelial system (RES)1,2. We have observed that, in adult mice pretreated with complete Freund's adjuvant3, the multiplication of foot and mouth disease virus (FMDV) is inhibited4, and we report here the results of further experiments.
