Excretion of alcelaphine herpesvirus-1 by captive and free-living wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus)



Excretion of alcelaphine herpesvirus-1 by captive and free-living wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus)



Onderstepoort Journal of Veterinary Research 56(2): 131-134



Investigations carried out in 2 captive groups of wildebeest and in 123 free-living wildebeest in the Kruga National Park showed that excretion of alcelaphine herpesvirus-1 (AHV-1) was for all practical purposes limited to wildebeest calves under the age of 4 months. Sixty-one per cent of calves 1-2 months of age excreted virus with a mean titre of 9,8 x 104 cytopathic-forming foci/ml in their ocular fluid. The incidence declined sharply to less than 2% in wildebeest older than 6 months.
