Human cells in early passage cultures of benign oral tumors, normal oral tissues, normal lung tissues and, especially, in long-term established oral carcinoma cultures were highly susceptible to infection by human adenovirus types 5, 21, and 31. In contrast, replication of each adenovirus type was markedly limited in inoculated cells of newly-established oral squamous cell carcinoma cultures.
