Abstract:

Despite the certainty concerning viral etiology of hemorrhagic fever in Uzbekistan, N. I. Khodukin and his colleagues were not able to obtain convincing evidence to prove their theory experiments of inoculating rabbits and employing thus obtained antigens and immune sera in Complement fixation test, may produce unspecific false positive results. It was impossible to decide with certainty the problem of viral etiology of the Crimean hemorrhagic type of illness without observations carried out on people. However, recently with the invention of a new technique of cultivation and identification of the Crimean hemorrhagic fever virus, it became possible to explain the interrelation between Crimean hemorrhagic fever and other illnesses of this type encountered in Central Asiatic republics, in Kazakhstan, and in other countries.
