  • Abstract:

    To investigate further the possible involvement of Herpesvirus avis in the aetiology of jaagsiekte, the kinetics of re-association of viral DNA and DNA isolated from tumour tissue as well as from cell cultures derived from it were studied. Although DNA-DNA hybridization could be demonstrated in 2 cases of jaagsiekte, no correlation was found between the presence of Herpesvirus avis genome sequences and the occurrence of the disease.
