Abstract:

Hyperimmune sera in the plaque neutralization test in chick embryo cell cultures produced no antigenic relationships between the new isolate and viruses of Kemerovo tick-borne fever, tick-borne and Japanese encephalitis, WEE, CTF, and herpes simplex virus. The data so far are incomplete evidence of the study of arbovirus isolated from man. Its peculiar behavior in different tissue cultures, almost complete absence of pathogenicity for mice, other laboratory animals, and chick embryos, significant cytopathic effect in inoculated tissue cultures, absence of cross neutralization with viruses isolated in Kemerovo region, and with some other viruses, permit the conclusion that this agent is another independent arbovirus found in western Siberia.
