Isolation of coronavirus-like agent from horses suffering from acute equine diarrhoea syndrome



Isolation of coronavirus-like agent from horses suffering from acute equine diarrhoea syndrome



Veterinary Record 113(12): 262-263



An acute form of diarrhoea in mature horses was reported from Maryland in the summers of 1979-82, the number of cases and size of affected areas having increased annually. In 1982 there were 113 clinical cases. Examination of a virus-like isolate from plasma and faeces indicated an enveloped RNA virus, and electrophoresis showed a polypeptide pattern similar to that of known coronaviruses. Electron microscopy showed particles morphologically similar to those of coronaviruses.
