Establishment and application of PCR for detection of mink enteritis virus
Analysis of experimental mink enteritis virus
infection in mink: in situ hybridization, serology, and histopathology.
Parvo viruses of carnivores include three closely related autonomous parvo viruses canine parvo virus (CPV), feline panleukopenia virus (FPV) and mink enteritis virus
Those plants produced large amounts of mink enteritis virus
that researchers recovered and used to inoculate test animals, who became resistant to the disease.
Three of the positive samples were from herds having mink enteritis virus. Lipidosis, Aleutian mink disease virus, and catarrhal enteritis also were diagnosed in the mink (online Technical Appendix Table).
Mink that tested positive for this new variant were from herds that had mink enteritis virus, hepatic lipidosis, Aleutian mink disease virus, and catarrhal enteritis, all factors that could explain the clinical and pathologic findings of the mink infected with HEV (15).
Emergence of Mink enteritis virus and CPV Type 2 (CPV-2)
The disease caused by the mink agent, named Mink enteritis virus (MEV), was thereafter observed throughout many regions of the world (2).
