Attempts were made to isolate the causative agent of infectious mononucleosis from 825 specimens taken from 146 patients ill with the disease and from 35 exposed individuals. Three of the contacts who later-contracted clinical infectious mononucleosis provided specimens for at least 2 weeks prior to the onset of symptoms. No agent was isolated that could be associated with the disease.
