Pathogenesis of Borna disease
in rats: evidence that intra-axonal spread is the major route for virus dissemination and the determinant for disease incubation.
Swabs from eye, mouth and anus of all animals were negative for the Borna disease
It has been recognised that Borna disease
virus (BDV) could cause neuropsychiatric complications including neurological, behavioural, and mood alterations in animals.
Persistent Borna disease
virus infection of neonatal rats causes brain regional changes of mRNAs for cytokines, cytokine receptor components and neuropeptides Brain Res Bull 1999; 49; 441-451.
Inhibition of Borna disease
virus replication by ribavirin.
The family Bornaviridae comprises the classical mammalian bornaviruses (Mammalian 1 bornavirus with borna disease
virus; BoDV-1 and -2); avian bornaviruses (Passeriform 1/2 bornavirus, Psittaciform 1/2 bornavirus, Waterbird 1 bornavirus); and a recently described Elapid 1 bornavirus from snakes (Loveridge's garter snake virus 1) (1).
To the Editor: Borna disease
(BD) is a fatal neurologic disorder in horses and sheep.
Antibodies against ABV were detected by use of an IIFA on persistently Borna disease
virus (BDV)-infected Madin-Darby canine kidney cells.
Before this discovery, the family Bornaviridae contained only 1 species, Borna disease
virus was named after the town of Borna in Saxony, southeastern Germany, where in 1885 many horses in a German cavalry regiment died of a fatal neurologic disease.
Conservation of coding potential and terminal sequences in four different isolates of Borna disease
virus (BDV) is the causative agent of Borna disease
, a meningoencephalitis of horses and sheep in central Europe (1).
