Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in Florida: association with the newly identified Black Creek Canal virus.
Isolation of black creek canal virus, a new hantavirus from Sigmodon hispidus in Florida.
Genetic and serologic analysis of Black Creek Canal virus and its association with human disease and Sigmodon hispidus infection.
Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in Florida; association with the newly identified Black Creek Canal virus
SNV in Peromyscus species rodents compared with Black Creek Canal virus
in Sigmodon species rodents) will clearly meet the broad criteria for separate species status.
This assay would detect (but not distinguish among) infections by New York virus (from the white-footed mouse ), Prospect Hill-like viruses (from arvicoline rodents ), El Moro Canyon virus (from the Western harvest mouse ), Black Creek Canal virus (from the cotton rat ), and Bayou virus (from the rice rat ).
Pathogenesis of a North American hantavirus, Black Creek Canal virus, in experimentally infected Sigmodon hispidus.
However, evidence using Black Creek Canal virus
and adult hispid cotton rats, Hantaan virus and Apodemus agrarius, and Puumala virus and Clethrionomys glareolus indicates that whereas viremia may diminish over time, virus can still be detected in various organs, including the salivary gland, for several months after infection (11 - 14).
