Diagnostic analysis of the prolonged bluetongue virus RNA presence found in the blood of naturally infected cattle and experimentally infected sheep

Diagnostic analysis of the prolonged bluetongue virus RNA presence found in the blood of naturally infected cattle and experimentally infected sheep

Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation 6(2): 139-142

Bluetongue virus (BTV) RNA was detected by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in the blood of 24 naturally infected cattle for as long as 160 days after the estimated date of infection. Blood samples from these animals and from 10 experimentally BTV-infected sheep, which also exhibited a prolonged haematological BTV RNA presence, were concurrently evaluated for viral infectivity.
