Serum antibody prevalence of parainfluenza 3 virus in a free-ranging bison (Bison bison) herd from Alaska

Serum antibody prevalence of parainfluenza 3 virus in a free-ranging bison (Bison bison) herd from Alaska

Journal of Wildlife Diseases 26(3): 416-419

Serum antibody prevalence of parainfluenza 3 virus in the free-ranging Delta bison (B. bison) herd which comprises about 300-400 animals and is found near Delta Junction, Alaska, USA, increased from 0% to 100% during the period 1977 to 1984. Up to 53 animals were sampled each year for this period. Domestic cattle are thought to be the source of the infection. There has been no clinical disease or decrease in productivity in this bison herd since establishment of the infection.
