Abstract:

White mice immunized with variola virus transmit the acquired protection congenitally deplacental and trophogenic to their young. Passive immunity of the litters can be tested by infection with variola virus. The system appears suitable for qualitative and quantitative testing of pox vaccines and of antigens from the variola-vaccinia group.
