aerosol exposure to zaire ebolavirus in three nonhuman primate species: differences in disease course and clinical pathology.there is little known concerning the disease caused by zaire ebolavirus (zebov) when inhaled, the likely route of exposure in a biological attack. cynomolgus macaques, rhesus macaques, and african green monkeys were exposed to aerosolized zebov to determine which species might be the most relevant model of the human disease. a petechial rash was noted on cynomolgus and rhesus macaques after fever onset but not on african green monkeys. fever duration was shortest in rhesus macaques (62.7±16.3 h) ...201121651988
animal models for ebolavirus countermeasures discovery: what defines a useful model?ebolaviruses are highly pathogenic filoviruses, which cause disease in humans and nonhuman primates (nhp) in africa. the zaire ebolavirus outbreak in 2014, which continues to greatly affect western africa and other countries to which the hemorrhagic fever was exported due to travel of unsymptomatic yet infected individuals, was complicated by the lack of available licensed vaccines or therapeutics to combat infection. after almost a year of research at an increased pace to find and test vaccines ...201526004783
