Abstract
The mean mortality of fowl embryos inoculated into the yolk sac with the avianized bovine strain of rinderpest virus was 89' 9 ± 4' I per cent. With the avianized lapinized strain it was 5 1'1 ± 14' I per cent. The curves relating numbers of deaths to days after inoculation were similar with the 2 strains. A significant factor influencing the mortality was the age of the fowl embryo at the time of inoculation.
