Abstract:

Korean hemorrhagic fever KHF occurred for the first time in Korea, 1951, although it had previously been known to both the Japanese and Russians. After the Korean war, the disease has been fixed in the areas of demilitarized zone DMZ as an endemic one, and from 100 to 300 cases have been reported every year. The aims of this project are epidemiologic investigation of the disease in the civilian endemic areas to isolate the causative agent of KHF, and to demonstrate specific antibodies of KHF by fluorescent antibody technique.
