Seroepidemiological study of filovirus related to Ebola virus in the Philippines



Seroepidemiological study of filovirus related to Ebola virus in the Philippines



Lancet 337(Feb. 16): 425-6



Recently several isolates of a filovirus closely related to Ebola virus have been made from monkeys imported into the USA. A survey of 186 people from wildlife collection areas and from the primate-handling facilities in the Philippines showed that 12 (6%) had serological evidence of infection, but no illness or death could be attributed to infection. This study and similar reports from the USA indicate that this virus does not represent a public health threat..J.
