Senior author Rafi Ahmed's laboratory has extensive experience studying mice infected with lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV).
The laboratory enlisted the help of the Greene Infectious Disease Laboratory at New York's Columbia University, where new gene sequencing techniques uncovered a link to the lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV).
Her organs were cleared for infectious diseases but not for lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus - an infection picked up from a hamster she bought three weeks before her death.
found that administering the molecule to mice controls infection with cytomegalovirus and lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus.
The previously unknown arenavirus, which is distantly related to the Lassa virus and Lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus, was characterized using the rapid and sensitive sequencing technology of 454 Life Sciences.
Lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV), an Old World arenavirus, family Arenaviridae, is a zoonotic virus maintained in the house mouse (Mus musculus) and can be carried by pet and laboratory rodents (1-7); human exposure occurs through aerosolized excreta or by direct rodent contact.
During the study, the researchers injected the mice with lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV), which is relatively harmless in humans with a healthy immune system.
