Experimental infection of Phlebotomus papatasi with sand fly fever Sicilian virus



Experimental infection of Phlebotomus papatasi with sand fly fever Sicilian virus



American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 39(6): 611-616



Experimental studies were conducted to evaluate humans as hosts infecting the sand fly Phlebotomus papatasi with sand fly fever Sicilian (SFS) virus. Viral antigen and infectious virus circulated in the blood of infected volunteers on days 4 and 5 after intravenous inoculation with SFS virus. Viremia levels during the latter period were high enough to infect feeding sand flies, but only 13% (9/69) of the flies became infected.
