Expanding fields in virus research hepatitis and rotaviruses






Biomedicine (Paris) 24(2): 95-97

Expanding fields in virus research hepatitis and rotaviruses

The hepatitis B virus, hepatitis A virus and the reovirus-like agents causing gastroenteritis in children and episodic diarrhea in calves (Nebraska calf scour virus) and infant mice infect man or animals but do not replicate in tissue culture. Their detection is based on EM or immunologic methods. Some basic information about the structure of these viruses exists but studies of these viruses are still limited by the lack of suitable tissue culture techniques.
