Abstract:

Cold acclimatized and nonacclimatized adult albino mice were given varying doses of zymosan or endotoxin subcutaneously 48 hours prior to challenge with 20 X 10 to the 4th power plaque forming units of Coxsackie B-1 virus intraperitoneally. Neither agent was effective in increasing host resistance and, in some instances, appeared to enhance the disease process.
