epidemiology of argentine hemorrhagic fever.present knowledge points to horizontal transmission as the most significant mechanism for junín virus maintenance in the main natural reservoirs, namely calomys musculinus and calomys laucha. the existence of naturally infected akodon azarae, both within and outside the endemic area, as well as the finding that other species, ecologically and phylogenetically related to the main reservoirs, such as akodon molinae and calomys callidus, can experimentally develop persistent infections with virus s ...19882841151
calomys callidus as a potential junin virus reservoir.the present study investigated whether c. callidus, a species belonging to the calomys genus, is capable of developing experimentally a persistent junin virus (jv) infection. newborn and adult cricetids were inoculated with the attenuated xj-clone 3 strain of jv by intracerebral or mucosal route. the present results indicate that the species is susceptible to jv infection, capable of shedding virus chronically through saliva and developing a persistent infection as shown by the detection of viru ...19892542433
