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
measles virus antibodies in a laboratory colony of owl monkeys (aotus trivirgatus).serologic testing revealed that 17/84 (20.2%) of bought-in aotus and 1/31 (3.2%) of colony-born aotus had haemagglutination-inhibition antibody. clinically-inapparent measles infections were detected in 3 monkeys by increased antibody titres. following the detection of a recent infection, antibody titre persisted at a high level for at least 240 days. although 84% of the monkeys were sero-susceptible, no further serological evidence of measles infection occurred.19817341843
