Abstract
Serum levels of the third component of complement (C3) were reduced only in the terminal stages in malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) virus-infected steers. Haemolytic complement and immunoglobulin (IgM, IgG1 and IgG2) levels were not altered. C3 and immunoglobulin deposits were also not demonstrated in the vascular lesions induced by MCFV. MCF virus infection of cattle is probably not a typical immune complex-mediated disease as previously suggested.
