seoul orthohantavirus in wild black rats, senegal, 2012-2013.hantaviruses cause hemorrhagic fever in humans worldwide. however, few hantavirus surveillance campaigns occur in africa. we detected seoul orthohantavirus in black rats in senegal, although we did not find serologic evidence of this disease in humans. these findings highlight the need for increased surveillance of hantaviruses in this region.202032946728
identification of a novel hantavirus strain in the root vole (microtus oeconomus) in lithuania, eastern europe.hantaviruses are zoonotic pathogens that can cause subclinical to lethal infections in humans. in europe, five orthohantaviruses are present in rodents: myodes-associated puumala orthohantavirus (puuv), microtus-associated tula orthohantavirus, traemmersee hantavirus (trav)/ tatenale hantavirus (tatv)/ kielder hantavirus, rat-borne seoul orthohantavirus, and apodemus-associated dobrava-belgrade orthohantavirus (dobv). human puuv and dobv infections were detected previously in lithuania, but the ...202032890767
serological evidence of thailand orthohantavirus or antigenically related virus infection among rodents in a chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology endemic area, girandurukotte, sri lanka.we have reported high seroprevalence to thailand orthohantavirus (thaiv) or thaiv-related orthohantavirus (trhv) among patients with chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology in girandurukotte, sri lanka. thaiv or trhv infection is considered to be transmitted by rodent hosts in this area, but its reservoir rodents have not yet been identified. hence, 116 rodents were captured, and seroprevalences were examined by indirect immunofluorescent antibody assay (immunofluorescence assay [ifa]) using ...201931339833
immunological responses to seoul orthohantavirus in experimentally and naturally infected brown rats (rattus norvegicus).to clarify the mechanism of seoul orthohantavirus (seov) persistence, we compared the humoral and cell-mediated immune responses to seov in experimentally and naturally infected brown rats. rats that were experimentally infected by the intraperitoneal route showed transient immunoglobulin m (igm) production, followed by an increased anti-seov immunoglobulin g (igg) antibody response and maturation of igg avidity. the level of seov-specific cytotoxic t lymphocytes (ctls) peaked at 6 days after in ...202133921493
wild rats, laboratory rats, pet rats: global seoul hantavirus disease revisited.recent reports from europe and the usa described seoul orthohantavirus infection in pet rats and their breeders/owners, suggesting the potential emergence of a "new" public health problem. wild and laboratory rat-induced seoul infections have, however, been described since the early eighties, due to the omnipresence of the rodent reservoir, the brown rat rattus norvegicus. recent studies showed no fundamental differences between the pathogenicity and phylogeny of pet rat-induced seoul orthohanta ...201931319534
seroprevalence of hantaviruses and leptospira in muskrat and coypu trappers in the netherlands, 2016.aims: seoul orthohantavirus (seov) and leptospira spp. are zoonotic pathogens with rats as main reservoir. recently, the presence of seov in brown rats was reported in one region in the netherlands. brown rats are a frequent bycatch in traps placed to catch muskrats (ondatra zibethicus) and coypus (myocastor coypus), and thus are a potential health risk for trappers. it was our aim to determine the seroprevalence of orthohantavirus, specifically seov, and leptospira spp in dutch trappers. method ...201829805784
