Abstract

In order to supplement the previous work, the authors performed some experiments. The result obtained is as follows : Equine infectious anemia (E.I.A.) virus was demonstrated in the mixed emulsion prepared from several organs of a test lamb (No.4) that was slaughtered on the 77th day after subcutaneous inoculation with the serum virus. Basing their consideration on the results of the previous and present experiments, the authors discussed the susceptibility of the sheep. It was concluded that it may be possible to cause a subclinical infection in lamb with E.I.A. virus.
