Experimental studies on the replication and dissemination of Qalyub virus (Bunyaviridae: Nairovirus) in the putative tick vector, Ornithodoros (Pavlovskyella) erraticus



Experimental studies on the replication and dissemination of Qalyub virus (Bunyaviridae: Nairovirus) in the putative tick vector, Ornithodoros (Pavlovskyella) erraticus



American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 34(1): 180-187



A laboratory study was carried out to determine whether Ornithodoros erraticus could serve as a biological vector of Qalyub virus, which has been isolated only from this tick in Egypt. On the basis of feeding experiments on infected suckling mice, O. erraticus appeared to satisfy the conditions that would implicate it as a biological vector of Qalyub virus. Vertical transmission of virus from infected female ticks to their progeny was not demonstrated.
