Simian foamy virus infections in a baboon breeding colony.
Phylogenetic analysis indicated that all baboon isolates formed a single lineage distinct from SFVs of other African monkey species, and competition ELISAs indicated that, while SFV isolates of these two groups were very closely related, antigenic differences do exist between them.

Results suggest that, although venereal transmission of HVP2 occurs among adult animals, oral infection of young, sexually immature baboons is not uncommon.
Diagnostic Exercise: Papulovesicular Dermatitis in Rhesus Macaques (Macaca mulatta)
Simian varicella virus was identified as the cause of vesicular dermatitis and widespread multifocal hemorrhagic necrosis of the lungs and other viscera, with intralesional intranuclear inclusions.
Detection and Differentiation of Primate α-herpesviruses by PCR
This method (PCR/RFLP) allowed the presence of herpesvirus DNA in clinical swabs from primates to be readily detected and the virus unambiguously identified.
Prevalence of Herpesvirus papio 2 in baboons and identification of immunogenic viral polypeptides.
HVP2 is a common infection of baboons; there is little antigenic variation among HVP2 strains; and there are several HVP1 antigens that represent consistent targets of the anti-HVP1 immune response of baboon immune sera.
Primary mouse dermal fibroblast cell cultures as an in vitro model system for the differential pathogenicity of cross-species herpesvirus papio 2 infections
The differential pathogenicity of HVP2 subtypes in mice and the lack of such differences in the natural baboon host are recapitulated in the primary dermal fibroblast cell culture system, which may prove useful in examining early, local, host responses that influence the outcome of cross-species infections.
Herpesvirus papio 2, an SA8-like α-herpesvirus of baboons
Results suggest that although closely related to SA8, the baboon viruses represent a distinct simian α-herpesvirus which is proposed to be designated Herpesv virus papio 2.
Retrospective analysis of an outbreak of B virus infection in a colony of DeBrazza's monkeys (Cercopithecus neglectus).
Testing of sera from lion-tailed macaques housed in an adjacent cage at the same zoo indicated that these animals harbored this virus and were the likely source of the virus that infected the DeBrazza's monkeys in 1981.
Herpesvirus papio 2, an SA8-like alpha-herpesvirus of baboons.
Results suggest that although closely related to SA8, the baboon viruses represent a distinct simian alpha-herpesvirus which is proposed be designated Herpesv virus papio 2.
Sequence and genetic arrangement of the UL region of the monkey B virus (Cercopithecine herpesvirus 1) genome and comparison with the UL region of other primate herpesviruses
The results demonstrate that the BV UL region is entirely co-linear with that of HSV-1 and HSv-2.
