Summary

Following intravenous injection of 0.000001 mg of tuberculosis bovine type culture with attenuated virulence, albino mice may become mycobacteria carriers for more than a year without developing the disease.

In the authors' opinion, this model latent tuberculosis infection affords a favorable opportunity for studying some problems of tuberculosis immunobiology, notably the factors either conducive or preventive to the development of the infection into the disease.
