Abstract
Viral hepatitis has been known to occur among the Greenland population endemically as well as in smaller and larger epidemics. A large epidemic of acute hepatitis comprising around 9% of the entire population, viz. more than 4000 notified cases, swept through Greenland between October 1970 and December 1972. 996 verified cases were seen in the Godthaab district and subjected to more detailed studies. Most of the Godthaab cases were seen among children and adolescents, and no disease was observed in children less than one year of age. Out of 996 diagnosed cases 9 showed acute hepatic failure with coma. Two further cases of hepatic coma were referred for treatment from outside the district. Three of these 11 patients recovered spontaneously. Of the residual 8 cases 6 were treated with exchange transfusions and steroids. Four of these survived and recovered completely. No lasting sequelae had been registered in any of the surviving cases of the epidemic up to June 1975 (2 1/2 years after cessation of the epidemic). Prophylaxis with gamma-globulin was undertaken in a medium-sized settlement in which practically the entire population received gamma-globulin when the first case of hepatitis was diagnosed. In this settlement only 7 out of 297 inhabitants contracted hepatitis. By contrast, in a similar settlement where no gamma-globulin was given, more than 30% of the population developed icteric hepatitis. The clinical features and the prophylactic effect of gamma-globulin seem to indicate that the epidemic was caused by the hepatitis A virus. In accordance with this, transitory Australia-antigenaemia was demonstrated in the acute phase in only 2.6% of the cases, possibly inidicating a small admixture of acute hepatitis type B to the epidemic predominantly caused by hepatitis A virus.

Abstract
The electrophoretic and immunochemical methods as well as gelfiltration through Sephadex G-200 showed that there are no immunoglobulins in blood serum of fetuses and new-born calves. Specific proteins in a zone of gamma-globulins electrophoretic mobility which correspond to Ig M and Ig A are found in the serum of calves 3 hrs after their feeding on colostrum. The content of these proteins reaches the maximum on the third day of life but at the age of three months it lowers up to minimum. On the third month after birth in the blood serum of calves there appears a new protein in a zone of gamma2-globulins mobility which correspond to Im G-main immunoglobulin of adult animals. An assumption is advanced that the protective functions of calves of the early age are found chiefly with immunoglobulins Ig M and Ig A.
