The demonstration of cell-free malignant catarrhal fever herpesvirus in wildebeest nasal secretions

  • E. Z. Mushi (a1), P. B. Rossiter (a1), L. Karstad (a1) and D. M. Jessett (a1)

Summary

Malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) herpesvirus was isolated from the nasal secretions of 4/11 young wildebeest calves. In two cases virus was demonstrated in filtered secretions. The presence of cell-free MCF virus would suggest that the virus can be transferred from wildebeest to wildebeest and into cattle in nasal secretions.
