Abstract

Fowl plague-like virus isolated from a man was infective for chickens. Clinical signs resembling those of fowl plague developed in the chickens when they were inoculated with blood clot material from the man, who had become ill after a trip abroad. The trip had included visits to areas from which fowl plague had been reported. Fowl plague-like virus and fowl plague virus elicited neutralizing antibodies for the heterologous as well as the homologous virus. A serologic relationship between the two was also shown by hemagglutination-inhibition tests. The course of fowl plague-like virus infection in chickens and its clinical signs and lesions were indistinguishable from those seen in chickens infected with fowl plague virus. Chickens that recovered from infection with fowl plague-like virus were refractory to fowl plague virus.
