Abstract:

This report states that 19 successive passages of the rabies virus strain 83 through the brain of a chicken embryo and 6 passages through the yolk sac are feasible. In the process of cultivation of the rabies virus in the organism of chicken embryo there was a variation-fixation of it shortening of the incubation period of infection, weakening of the ability of the virus to cause formation of the Negri bodies in the animals and disappearance of the virus from the tissue of the submaxillary gland of the pups dogs.
