spatial and temporal dynamics of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus in wild rodents, northern italy.we determined the prevalence of infection with lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (lcmv) among small mammals in northern italy and analyzed long-term dynamics of lcmv in a rodent population in the province of trento. lcmv is circulating among the most widespread and common wild rodent species in this area (apodemus flavicollis, myodes glareolus, and microtus arvalis); overall prevalence is 6.8%. during 2000-2006, intensive monitoring of lcmv in a population of yellow-necked mice (a. flavicollis) ...200919624914
hantavirus and arenavirus antibody prevalence in rodents and humans in trentino, northern italy.the spatial and temporal distribution of hantavirus and arenavirus antibody-positive wild rodents in trentino, italy, was studied using immunofluorescence assays (ifa) in two long-term sites trapped in 2000-2003, and six other sites trapped in 2002. the overall hantavirus seroprevalence in the bank voles, clethrionomys glareolus (n=229) screened for puumala virus (puuv) antibodies was 0.4%, and that for apodemus flavicollis mice (n=1416) screened for dobrava virus (dobv) antibodies was 0.2%. ant ...200616371172
