Abstract : A strain of ornithosis agent has been obtained which is resistant to high temperature (heating at 60C for 10 min.) and which, in contrast to the original strain, has lost its toxic properties. Investigation of the development of ornithosis agent at low temperatures showed that the virus could be detected in chick embryo fibroblast culture at a temperature as low as 8C. Media with different pH values, from 6.0 to 8.4 do not affect subsequent development of ornithosis virus. (Author)
