Hendra virus and Nipah virus are highly pathogenic paramyxoviruses that have recently emerged from flying foxes to cause serious disease outbreaks in humans and livestock in Australia, Malaysia, Singapore and Bangladesh. Their unique genetic constitution, high virulence and wide host range set them apart from other paramyxoviruses. These features led to their classification into the new genus Henipavirus within the family Paramyxoviridae and to their designation as Biosafety Level 4 pathogens… 
Hendra and Nipah viruses: why are they so deadly?
Immunization strategies against henipaviruses.
Hendra virus and Nipah virus are recently discovered and closely related emerging viruses that now comprise the genus henipavirus within the sub-family Paramyxoviridae and are distinguished by their
Henipaviruses are not yet history
ABSTRACT  Within the Paramyxoviridae family, Henipaviruses are the deadliest human pathogens. Nipah and Hendra viruses comprise the genus Henipavirus, zoonotic pathogens which cause encephalitis and
HENDRA AND NIPAH VIRUS DISEASES SUMMARY
  • Medicine
  • 2008
Hendra virus (HeV) and Nipah virus (NiV) emerged in the last decade of the twentieth century as the causes of outbreaks of respiratory and neurological disease that infected a number of animal
Recent challenges in understanding Henipavirus immunopathogenesis: role of nonstructural viral proteins
TLDR
Hendra virus (HeV) and Nipah virus (NiV) are closely related recently emerged zoonotic paramyxoviruses, belonging to Henipavirus genus, considered as a potential agent for bioterrorism and classified as biosecurity level 4 pathogens.
Nipah viruses from Malaysia and Bangladesh: two of a kind?
TLDR
Comparisons of Nipah virus isolates in vitro have demonstrated differences in regulation of innate immunity and replicative ability, but similarities in infection outcomes and tissue tropism in the ferret model indicate that differences between viral isolates may not be the pivotal determinants of NIPah virus transmission.

Hendra and Nipah Viruses: Lethal Zoonotic Paramyxoviruses
TLDR
This chapter focuses on Henipavirus biology, and the development of recombinant subunit immunogens would also represent a viable approach for vaccine development because they are inherently safe and are administered without risk of infection.

Nipah virus infection, an emerging paramyxoviral zoonosis
TLDR
An overview of the Nipah outbreak is provided, focussing on what is presently known about it as an infectious disease, including the clinical aspects, pathology and pathogenesis.
Nipah virus: a recently emergent deadly paramyxovirus.
TLDR
Electron microscopic, serologic, and genetic studies indicate that the Nipah virus belongs to the family Paramyxoviridae and is most closely related to the recently discovered Hendra virus, and it is suggested that these two viruses are representative of a new genus within the familyparamyxviridae.

Isolation of Hendra virus from pteropid bats: a natural reservoir of Hendra virus.
TLDR
The isolation of HeV from pteropid bats corroborates earlier serological and epidemiological evidence that they are a natural reservoir host of the virus and reinforces the hypothesis that HeV excretion from bats might be related to the birthing process.
Molecular characterization of Nipah virus, a newly emergent paramyxovirus.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis demonstrated that although HV and NV are closely related, they are clearly distinct from any of the established genera within the Paramyxoviridae and should be considered a new genus.

Nipah virus, family Paramyxoviridae, caused disease in pigs and humans in peninsular Malaysia in 1998-99. Because Nipah virus appears closely related to Hendra virus, wildlife surveillance focused
Membrane Fusion Tropism and Heterotypic Functional Activities of the Nipah Virus and Hendra Virus Envelope Glycoproteins
TLDR
It is shown that the NiV and HeV glycoproteins are capable of highly efficient heterotypic functional activity with each other and may provide new insights into paramyxovirus membrane fusion mechanisms.
