Excerpt
In a previous study carried out at the Infectious Diseases Hospital in Madras it was shown that smallpox virus could be obtained from patients' mouth washings most readiIy between the sixth and ninth days of illness (Downie et al., 1961). However, our attempts to recover virus by air sanlpling in the wards and in close proximity to the patient's mouth were practically all unsuccessful (Meiklejohn et al., 1961). It was suggested that this failure might have been due to the method of air sampling used-the drawing of air at a rate of 10 litres per minute through a small glass funnel containing packed, dry cottonvool; after runs for various periods in the vicinity of the patient the contents of the cottonwool were extracted with diluent, and this was then inoculated on the chorio-allantoic membranes of chick embryos.
