genetic analysis of the diversity and origin of hantaviruses in peromyscus leucopus mice in north america.nucleotide sequences were determined for the complete m genome segments of two distinct hantavirus genetic lineages which were detected in hantavirus antibody- and pcr-positive white-footed mice (peromyscus leucopus) from indiana and oklahoma. phylogenetic analyses indicated that although divergent from each other, the virus lineages in indiana and oklahoma were monophyletic and formed a newly identified unique ancestral branch within the clade of sin nombre-like viruses found in peromyscus mice ...19989420200
hantavirus pulmonary syndrome associated with monongahela virus, pennsylvania.the first two recognized cases of rapidly fatal hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in pennsylvania occurred within an 8-month period in 1997. illness in the two patients was confirmed by immunohistochemical techniques on autopsy material. reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction analysis of tissue from one patient and environmentally associated peromyscus leucopus (white-footed mouse) identified the monongahela virus variant. physicians should be vigilant for such monongahela virus-associated ...200011076720
two cases of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in randolph county, west virginia: a coincidence of time and place?hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (hps) is caused by an infection with viruses of the genus hantavirus in the western hemisphere. rodent hosts of hantaviruses are present throughout the united states. in july 2004, two hps case-patients were identified in randolph county, wv: a wildlife science graduate student working locally and a randolph county resident. we interviewed family members and colleagues, reviewed medical records, and conducted environmental studies at likely exposure sites. small mam ...200717360864
twenty-year summary of surveillance for human hantavirus infections, united the past 20 years of surveillance for hantavirus in humans in the united states, 624 cases of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (hps) have been reported, 96% of which occurred in states west of the mississippi river. most hantavirus infections are caused by sin nombre virus, but cases of hps caused by bayou, black creek canal, monongahela, and new york viruses have been reported, and cases of domestically acquired hemorrhagic fever and renal syndrome caused by seoul virus have also occurred. rare ...201324274585
