While the distantly related Lymphocytic choriomeningitis
virus is generally harmless in healthy humans, the Lujo virus demonstrates an unprecedented high case fatality rate of 80% and unusual degree of pathogenicity.
Serum samples were tested for IgG against WWAV, Amapan virus (AMAV), an arenavirus that is antigenically closely related to the Tacaribe serocomplex viruses known to cause hemorrhagic fever (4), and lymphocytic choriomeningitis
virus (LCMV), the prototypical arenavirus and member of the Lassa-lymphocytic choriomeningitis
serocomplex, by using an ELISA.
Other viruses, such as Hantavirus and lymphocytic choriomeningitis
virus, have polymerases that function like that of the influenza virus, DuBois said.
For their study, the researchers used lymphocytic choriomeningitis
virus (LCMV), which is relatively harmless in humans with a healthy immune system.
To investigate the effectiveness of exogenous recombinant human IL-7 in sustaining a primary in vivo response, the investigators treated lymphocytic choriomeningitis
virus (LCMV)-vaccinated tumor-bearing RIP (GP x TAG2) mice with IL-7 or with a buffer for 14 days.
