ABSTRACT
Examines the antibody responses of rufous night herons and little egrets following infection with Murray Valley encephalitis and Kunjin viruses. Detection of hemugglutinin-inhibiting antibodies; Observation that neutralizing antibody development paralleled that of H1 antibodies; Possibility of determining with which virus a bird had been infected from the pattern of cross-reaction with the antigens.

    In the third season (2002) of the West Nile virus epidemic in the United States, two canids (wolf and dog) were diagnosed with West Nile virus encephalitis and myocarditis with similarities to known affected species (humans, horses, and birds). The West Nile virus infections were confirmed by...

    This article presents a study, to determine the long-term outcome for patients with neurologic manifestations of West Nile virus (WNV) infection. 16 patients, with confirmed WNV infection were detected. WNV-specific antibodies were detected in acute-phase serum or cerebrospinal fluid samples by...

    West Nile virus (WNV), a mosquito-borne single-stranded (ss)RNA flavivirus, causes human disease of variable severity. We investigated the involvement of Toll-like receptor (Tlr) 3, which recognizes viral double-stranded (ds)RNA, on WNV infection. Tlr3-deficient (Tlr3-/-) mice were more...

    West Nile virus (WNV), a mosquito-borne single-stranded RNA flavivirus, can cause significant human morbidity and mortality. Our data show that interleukin-10 (IL-10) is dramatically elevated both in vitro and in vivo following WNV infection. Consistent with an etiologic role of IL-10 in WNV...

    Since its appearance in New York in August 1999, human infection with West Nile Virus (WNV) has spread over much of the United States and adjacent Canada. As of January 2004, 8977 human cases of WNV infection, have been reported to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The vast...
