We studied the temporal appearance of immunoglobulins (immunoglobulins G1, G2, M, and A) and interferon in lung savage fluids of mice after aerosol exposure to influenza virus in six animal groups in which mortality rates ranged from 0 to 24%. Immunoglobulin levels in the lung lavage fluids were markedly higher in mouse groups with higher mortality rates (16, 20, and 24%) than in those with low mortality rates 40, 2.5, and 7.5%).
