V. Evaluation of Cross-Immunity against Type 1 Dengue Fever in Human Subjects Convalescent from Subclinical Natural Japanese Encephalitis Virus Infection and Vaccinated with 17D Strain Yellow Fever Vaccine
Nariva virus is a new, ether-sensitive agent isolated on four separate occasions from rodents, Zygodontomys b. brevicauda, caught in Bush Bush forest in the Nariva swamp, eastern Trinidad, in 1962 and 1963. Identification of the virus and its behavior in various animals and tissue cultures are reported. Limited studies disclose no evidence of human infection with Nariva virus. Twenty-three of 29 Zygodontomys captured during the period the isolations were made had Nariva virus neutralizing antibodies.
