enhancement of infectivity of hantavirus in cell culture by centrifugation.centrifugation was introduced during virus adsorption to vero e6 cells to improve the infectivity of hantavirus. centrifugal adsorption of a stock solution of hantaan virus strain 76-118 to a monolayer of vero e6 cells enhanced virus infectivity depending on the centrifugation time and the centrifugal force. the maximum level of infectivity (3.1 x 10(6) ffu/ml) was enhanced after a 2 h centrifugation at 671 x g, which was almost 9-times higher than that of conventional adsorption of the virus at ...19947822463

hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. pathogenesis of an emerging infectious disease.a recent outbreak of a severe pulmonary disease in the southwestern united states was etiologically linked to a previously unrecognized hantavirus. the virus has been isolated from its major reservoir, the deer mouse, peromyscus maniculatus, and recently named sin nombre virus. clinically, the disease has become known as the hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (hps). since may 1993, 44 fatal cases of hps have been identified through clinicopathological review and immunohistochemical (ihc) testing of t ...19957887439

prevalence and geographic genetic variation of hantaviruses of new world harvest mice (reithrodontomys): identification of a divergent genotype from a costa rican reithrodontomys mexicanus.we recently described a novel hantavirus (hmv-1) of the western harvest mouse reithrodontomys megalotis. screening of 181 additional specimens of reithrodontomys from the united states and mexico, including samples of r. mexicanus, r. sumichrasti, and r. gracilis of costa rica, for antibodies to hantavirus nucleocapsid protein revealed a widespread enzootic of hantavirus infection. genetic analyses of 7 s genomes of reithrodontomys-associated hantaviruses demonstrated that the enzootic of hmv-1 ...19957886948
hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in california: report of two cases and investigation.we report two cases of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome that were probably acquired in california. genetic analysis of tissue specimens from one of the patients revealed that the virus isolated is a variant of the strain (sin nombre virus) identified in the outbreak of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome that occurred in the four corners region of the southwestern united states in 1993. in addition to presenting the clinical features of the two cases, we discuss the possible risk factors for infection.19947888541
risk of infections transmitted by arthropods and rodents in forestry hundred and fifty-one forestry workers and 151 matched office clerks were compared as to the presence of antibodies against borelia burgdorferi, tick-borne encephalitis virus, puumalavirus and lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus. their occupational risks of being infected by borrelia was fourfold and significant, by puumalavirus and lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus was increased but not significant. no seropositivity has been established against tick-borne encephalitis virus.19947859849
comparison of virulence between seoul virus strain sr-11 and hantaan virus strain 76-118 of hantaviruses in newborn mice.virulence of hantavirus strain of sr-11 seoul virus and hantaan 76-118 (htn) of hantaan virus were compared. infections of both strains were lethal in newborn mice. however, inoculum required to cause lethal infection was about 4,000 times higher for strain htn (1.65 x 10(3) pfu/mouse/ld50) than for strain sr-11 (0.36 pfu). thus, both strains were considered pathogenic to newborn mice but they possessed different levels of virulence. the assay system used for these strains in newborn mice proved ...19937901740
