The successful experimental transmission of enzootic intranasal tumor (EIT) from goat to goat is described. Ten kids, less than 48 hours old, from a flock free of the disease and seronegative for ruminant lentiviruses were inoculated intranasally or intrasinusally with either nasal fluid from goats with naturally occurring EIT or EIT retrovirus concentrated from such fluids. EIT was induced in three kids after 12-24 months. The EIT retrovirus was demonstrated in tumor material from each of the three kids by western blotting and electron microscopy. All kids were seronegative for ruminant lentiviruses.
