experimental zika virus infection of jamaican fruit bats (artibeus jamaicensis) and possible entry of virus into brain via activated microglial cells.the emergence of zika virus (zikv) in the new world has led to more than 200,000 human infections. perinatal infection can cause severe neurological complications, including fetal and neonatal microcephaly, and in adults there is an association with guillain-barré syndrome (gbs). zikv is transmitted to humans by aedes sp. mosquitoes, yet little is known about its enzootic cycle in which transmission is thought to occur between arboreal aedes sp. mosquitos and non-human primates. in the 1950s and ...201930716104
hematologic values of jamaican fruit bats (artibeus jamaicensis) and the effects of isoflurane anesthesia.jamaican fruit bats (artibeus jamaicensis) are used as an animal model for several viruses, including middle east respiratory syndrome virus, dengue virus, zika virus, and tacaribe virus. however, despite ongoing studies regarding these pathogens, little is known regarding the bats' normal physiology. in this study, phlebotomy of the propetagial (cephalic) vein was performed to establish baseline hematologic parameters in an apparently healthy, captive population of jamaican fruit bats. furtherm ...202032164795
