Abstract
Rinderpest can be transmitted easily to experimental cattle by many parenteral routes, but the natural method of infection remains unknown. Many text-books still state that infection takes place by the oral route in the ordinary course of events (Hutrya, Marek & Manninger, 1946; Henning, 1949; Davies, 1955; Blood & Henderson, 1960; Hagan & Bruner, 1961). This is in spite of evidence that drenching with large quantities of highly infectious material may fail to set up the disease (Schein & Jacotot, 1925; Hornby, 1926; Maurer, 1965)and, on the contrary, a great ' deal of information indicating the ease with which the virus invades the body when introduced via the upper respiratory tract (see Hornby, 1926; Hall, 1933; Maurer, 1965; Liess & Plowright, 1964; Plowright, 1964) or as an aerosol (Provost, 1958).
