Cultivation of the Lansing strain of poliomyelitis virus in cultures of various human embryonic tissues.

Science, 109, 85-87, 1949.

Enders, Weller, and Robbins grew the poliomyelitis virus in cultures of different tissues. Their method proved of great value in virus research, and removed the final obstacles to vaccine production.

In 1974 Enders, Weller and Robbins were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for "for their discovery of the ability of poliomyelitis viruses to grow in cultures of various types of tissue."

Studies on the cultivation of poliomyelitis viruses in tissue culture.

J. Immunol., 69, 645-671, 1952.

Order of authorship in the original publication: Weller, Enders, Robbins. In this paper the authors describe their improved method for culturing poliomyelitis viruses in "normal kidney tissue." 

Followed by Robbins, Weller, Enders, "Studies on the cultivation of poliomyelitis viruses in tissue culture II. The propagation of the poliomyelitis viruses in roller-tube cultures of various human tissues", J. Immunol., 69, 1952, 673-691. 

Publication of these techniques was instrumental in allowing Jonas Salk to develop the first polio vaccine.
