[use of polyethylene glycol (peg) in the isolation of the ibr virus].experiments were carried out to use polyethylene-glycol (peg)--6000 in the isolation of the ibr virus from field material. the sedimentation with peg proved easy, fast and selective. large amounts of field material suspension could be treated which made it possible to attain volume concentration of such suspensions and to raise the relative concentration of the virus in them. thus the virus could be isolated more quickly and in a more dependable way, avoiding the toxic effect of some of the init ...1976183343

antibody class and complement requirement of neutralizing antibodies in the primary and secondary antibody response of cattle to infectious bovine rhinotracheitis virus vaccine.calves responded to a single intramuscular injection of an attenuated strain of infectious bovine rhinotracheitis virus by producing igm followed by igg antibody. both igm and igg antibody produced during the first month were primarily complement-requiring neutralizing antibody (crnab), especially igm antibody. after a month, igg had replaced igm as the predominant immunoglobulin, and titers with and without complement (c') decreased in both igg and igm fractions. the largest decrease was in the ...1976184759
[micro-epidemiology and micro-plaque titration of infectious bovine rhinotracheitis virus on primary calf kidney cells by means of immunofluorescence].immunofluorescence was used to study the virus of infectious bovine rhinotracheitis and the course of infection in cell cultures of calf kidney. an indirect relationship was found to exist between the magnitude of inoculation and the onset of specific fluorescence. fluorescent plaques are formed as a result of inoculate dilution. the plaques will grow along with incubation time. release of virus into the culturing medium will first lead to the formation of secondary plaques, then followed by gen ...1976185980

lymphocyte activation by cell separation procedures.cell separation techniques normally used to obtain subpopulations of lymphocytes were shown, under certain conditions, to render the cells cytotoxic towards a number of target-cells including autologous lymphocytes. to cause cytotoxicity, it was necessary to pass cells through glass wool and/or nylon wool columns equilibrated with media containing fresh plasma or serum. cells lost activation upon overnight in vitro culture or treatment with trypsin. in addition to direct cell cytotoxicity, cells ...1976186400
in vitro interferon production by bovine tissues: effects of hydrocortisone.the effect of hydrocortisone on bovine interferon production in vitro was studied. infectious bovine rhinotracheitis virus was used as an inducer. interferon was assayed by the plaque-reduction method in bovine fetal kidney cultures, using vesicular stomatitis virus as challenge virus. hydrocortisone decreased interferon production in bovine fetal spleen and peripheral blood leukocyte cultures. hydrocortisone did not decrease interferon production by bovine alveolar macrophages, in 1 experiment. ...1976187092
in vitro interferon production by bovine tissues: induction with infectious bovine rhinotracheitis virus.the interferon-inducing ability of infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (ibr) virus was determined in tissue cultures of bovine origin inoculated with untreated and ultraviolet (uv) irradiated ibr viruses. interferon was assayed by the plaque-reduction method in bovine fetal kidney (bfk) cell cultures, using vesicular stomatitis virus as challenge virus. highest interferon concentrations were produced by cultures of bovine fetal (bf) spleen cells and aveolar macrophage cultures derived from adult c ...1976187093
the isolation and characterization of a strain of infectious bovine rhinotracheitis virus from stillbirth in swine.a virus, designated 5089, which was isolated from tissue samples from two stillborn pig fetuses was identified on the basis of its morphology, cytopathology, physiocochemical and serological characteristics as a strain of infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (ibr) virus. three piglets inoculated intranasally with 5089 virus did not respond serologically and no virus was isolated from their tissues at intervals after inoculation. they showed neither clinical signs nor significant lesions. a colostru ...1976187299
