Abstract

Summary

A strain of yellow fever virus of jungle origin was easily maintained by alternate passage through a species of marmoset () and mosquitoes. Nine cycles have been completed.

Yellow fever virus, also of jungle origin, was similarly passed through cebus monkeys () and . Five cycles were completed when the series was voluntarily interrupted.

Using as vector in conjunction with the marmoset as host, three cycles were completed before the series was interrupted for lack of fresh mosquitoes.

The implication of these observations in relation to the epidemiology of South American jungle yellow fever is briefly discussed.
