trajectory analysis of winds and eastern equine encephalitis in usa, 1980-5.backward trajectories of winds were determined to identify possible sources of eastern equine encephalitis virus associated with isolation of virus from mosquitoes or birds or outbreaks in horses between 1980 and 1985 in maryland, new jersey, new york and michigan, usa. the results of the trajectory analyses suggested that eastern equine encephalitis virus could have been carried by infected mosquitoes on surface winds at temperatures 13 degrees c or higher from north carolina north-eastwards al ...19901969804
isolation of cache valley virus and detection of antibody for selected arboviruses in michigan horses in 1980.blood samples collected in september and november 1980 from 87 horses in southwestern michigan were examined for virus isolation and for plaque-reduction neutralizing antibody against selected arboviruses. cache valley virus was isolated from the blood of a clinically normal horse in st joseph county in september. the age-specific antibody prevalence for cache valley virus indicated enzootic transmission in the study area. the high antibody prevalence and the lack of age-specific antibody preval ...19873631684

simplified technique for isolation, excystation, and culture of sarcocystis species from opossums.sarcocystis neurona is a protozoan parasite that causes a neurological disease in horses called equine protozoal myeloencephalitis. the route of transmission is speculated to be by fecal-oral transfer of sporocysts shed from opossums. controversy exists regarding both the natural life cycle for this parasite as well as the species identity of opossum sarcocystis. to provide stage-specific material for species comparison, 27 opossums from southern michigan were screened for sarcocystis spp. sporo ...199910577742
