With the advent of tissue culture, a number of viruses have been isolated from the human alimentary tract. As a consequence, our knowledge of these agents and of the infections they cause has greatly increased. These viruses are of public health importance for they are responsible for outbreaks of diseases, both minor and major, such as poliomyelitis, aseptic meningitis, respiratory illnesses, exanthems and at times diarrhoea of infants. The presence and incidence of these viruses in a community can be determined by epidenliological surveys. Ideally the system employed should be one which permits the recovery of as many viral agents as are present in the specimens tested. This ideal can be approached by using sinlultaneously a number of different cell cultures (and infant mice) but this is often not convenient or feasible in any one laboratory. More realistic would be the selection of one or two cell types with the broadest spectrum of susceptibility to these viruses.
