The ciba foundation of London has again assembled a group of international scientists to discuss the new biology of myxoviruses under the general chairmanship of Sir Christopher Andrewes of Salisbury. The proceedings of this colloquium are published here. Myxoviruses were defined by Andrewes, Bang, and Burnet in 1955 as viruses 60 to 200 mμ in diameter, which adsorb to red cells, elute from them enzymically, are sensitive to ether, and generally give rise to respiratory infections. The original designate members were influenza A, B, and C, fowl plague, Newcastle disease, and mumps.
