Results show the higher prevalence of CMV and EBV in early childhood, HSV primary infection appears to take place earlier in life than in temperate and developed countries, but later(More)
We have looked for long-term antibodies to Herpesviridae (HSV, VZV, CMV, EBV) in an African population (suburban area of Dakar, Senegal, West Africa) and in a European population (urban area of Bordeaux, France) in order to determine the prevalence of these viruses. The studied sera have been dispatched into 5 age-groups: 6 months to 4 years, 5 years to 9(More)

Sera from 353 people resident in Dakar, Senegal, West Africa, were tested for hemagglutination-inhibiting antibodies against the avian paramyxovirus Yucaipa. Antibodies were demonstrated in five sera (1.4%), providing new evidence that this virus may infect humans.
