Street rabies virus was successfully grown in a primary culture of puppy kidney cells. Data are presented comparing growth of the Mochalin and Kar strains over a 29-day period. The Mochalin strain which had been adapted to the culture by nine serial passages multiplied much more actively. Adaptation of the virus to the culture was characterized by a shortened latent period of infection any by an increase in the virus titer. No destruction of the cell monolayer was observed during virus propagation.
