[neutralization test for lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus for distinguishing between two arenavirus infections in argentina].the active coexistence of two pathogenic arenaviruses, junin (junv) and lymphocytic choriomeningitis (lcmv), in the same region of argentina, has been known since the early 70's, and records of clinical and subclinical human infections by one and/or the other agent have been continuously produced for the last 25 years. anti-lcmv antibody is currently searched only by indirect immunofluorescence, a test that shows cross reactions among a number of arenaviruses yielding, in the cases of lcmv and j ...200111833256
[isolation of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus from human individuals].the activity of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (lcmv) in argentina has been previously reported on the basis of serological evidence in rodents and humans and the isolation of only one strain of lcmv from a mus domesticus captured in the province of córdoba. the aim of this paper was to register patients with serological diagnosis of lcm, to isolate and to identify human strains of lcmv in argentina. during the last 19 years, 15 cases were diagnosed as lcm by immunoflourescent indirect assay ...200111808424
prevalence of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus infection in a human population of argentina.the activity of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (lcmv) in the endemic area of argentine hemorrhagic fever has been previously reported and represents the first evidence of the coexistence of two arenaviruses pathogenic for humans, junin and lcmv, in the same geographic area. data are presented on the prevalence of lcmv human infection in a 10,000-km2 area located in santa fe province, argentina. study subjects were males, 15-65 years old, living and/or working in the rural area of 41 localiti ...19948147496
