haemagglutination-inhibiting antibodies against african horse sickness virus in domestic animals in nigeria.a sero-epidemiological survey of african horse sickness (ahs) virus in 261 animals which included 96 camels, 81 horses, 80 dogs and 4 donkeys was carried out in nigeria. the animals had no history of vaccination against ahs. sera were tested by the haemagglutination-inhibition (hi) test for the presence of antibody against ahs virus. of these, 77 (95.1%) horse, 4 (100%) donkey, 10 (10.4%) camel and 28 (35%) dog sera samples tested were recorded as positive. the prevalence of antibody in samples ...19938111431
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
