Susceptibility of wild rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) in the United Kingdom to rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD)



Susceptibility of wild rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) in the United Kingdom to rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD)



Veterinary Research 28(3): 271-276



Serum antibody titres were determined in 27 adult wild rabbits from the southern UK, previously unexposed to RHD and in 4 laboratory-bred New Zealand White rabbits. 22 wild rabbits were seropositive while 5 wild and all 4 laboratory rabbits were seronegative. All rabbits were then experimentally challenged with a UK strain of the virus. Three of 4 laboratory rabbits died between 32 and 42 h after infection.
