Young adult rats given a combined infection with and encephalomyocarditis (EMC) virus experienced a high incidence of crippling and death while control rats which received the nematode alone remained free of disease. Rats given the virus alone had a much lower incidence of crippling than did those with the combined infection.

Rats which received and EMC virus were also distinguishable by a sharp and sustained loss of weight, presence of virus in skeletal muscle and by some differences in muscle histology.

The synergistic effect of on EMC virus infection was demonstrable over a period of 10 to 28 days after inoculation with the nematode.
