Abstract:

An annotated bibliography of investigations concerned with the isolation and characterization of viral agents from human cases of infectious hepatitis has been assembled. Documentation of the host systems, which included both conventional and nonconventional laboratory animals and tissue cultures, utilized in the recovery of 23 classified viruses and six or more strains of unclassified viral agents has been presented. In addition to those reports categorized under various host systems used in isolation, supplementary documentation of published reports by various investigators from a number of foreign countries has been presented to emphasize the international and universal problem of ascertaining etiologic agents for this disease and to provide a means for correlation of the isolated agents. The classified viruses, unclassified viral agents, and host systems employed have been tabulated. The bibliography includes one hundred and sixty-five references.
