Abstract:

Cells from tissue cultures of chick embryos, infected with the louping ill virus, displayed increased resistance not only to the cytopathogenic action of indicator virus, but also to diphtheria toxin. This testifies to the fact that resistance to the virus is only a partial manifestation of the condition of increased resistance which develops in a cell during the process of development of interferon.
