Abstract

The kinetics of conversion to SV40 seropositivity of cynomolgous macaques were followed as part of the health monitoring of a breeding colony to examine possible routes of transmission. The data suggest that transmission is neither vertical nor perinatal, and that conditions of husbandry might reduce the frequency of spread between animals.
