Hantavirus infection in bank voles in the natural reservoir. Part 1. Characteristics of an infection process in bank voles



Hantavirus infection in bank voles in the natural reservoir. Part 1. Characteristics of an infection process in bank voles



Meditsinskaia Parazitologiia i Parazitarnye Bolezni 2001(3): 22-26



The specific features of hantavirus infection in naturally infected bank voles (Clethrionomys glareolus), the principal host of hantavirus of the serotype Puumala, were studied during long-term observation of individually marked animals in the active focus of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) in the south of Udmurtia. The infection time in the bank voles was defined by paired serum seroconversion tests. In the natural focus, hantavirus was shown to cause asymptomatic persistent infection in the bank voles with the body's peak accumulation of the virus and its environmental discharge within the first month of infection. In this period the animals present the greatest epidemic and epizootic hazards. Hantavirus infection has no negative impact on the viability of bank voles.
