host and viral traits predict zoonotic spillover from mammals.the majority of human emerging infectious diseases are zoonotic, with viruses that originate in wild mammals of particular concern (for example, hiv, ebola and sars). understanding patterns of viral diversity in wildlife and determinants of successful cross-species transmission, or spillover, are therefore key goals for pandemic surveillance programs. however, few analytical tools exist to identify which host species are likely to harbour the next human virus, or which viruses can cross species ...201728636590
junin virus activity in rodents from endemic and nonendemic loci in central argentina.small mammals were trapped during a 21-month period at 27 farm sites in 15 localities within and beyond the known endemic area for argentine hemorrhagic fever (ahf). prevalence of junin virus (jv) was assessed by antigen-capture enzyme immunoassay (elisa) on samples of body fluids and/or organs from 3, 282 captured rodents. infection in rodent populations was variable (0-3.7%) among localities but, in all cases, was lower than previously reported rates. overall prevalence was 1.4% in the ahf epi ...19911650148
