Abstract

Summary

Trinidad virus TRVL 34053-1, belonging in group C and closely related to Caraparu virus, was shown to circulate in the blood of naturally and experimentally infected . All seven experimental animals circulated virus; the maximum virus level observed in their serum was 5.8 dex LD for adult mice inoculated intracerebrally with 0.03 ml.

Studies with 80 experimentally infected animals, 40 and 40 , showed that hemagglutination-inhibiting (HI), complement-fixing and neutralizing antibodies persist for at least 1 year after infection with 34053-1 virus. HI antibodies derived from experimentally infected mothers of these two species persisted for about 2 months after birth and neutralizing antibodies persisted for about 1 month longer.
