Abstract

Summary

In five out of seven experiments the Highlands J strain of Western equine encephalomyelitis (WEE) was transmitted by contact among infant chicks. Contacts were infected in cramped, limited, and oral environments, but not in fecal or air-borne environments. The infection was probably disseminated by the ingestion of infective oral secretions. Previous investigations conducted on three strains of WEE and eight strains of eastern equine encephalomyelitis are briefly discussed.
