After experimental infection of the argasid tick,Ornithodoros moubata porcinus, with African swine fever virus, the distribution of the agent in the dissected tissues of the tick was determined by virus recovery and immunofluorescence tests up to a maximum of 50 weeks after infection. Primary establishment and longest persistence of the virus occurred in the gut. Extension to and replication in other tissues quickly ensued, possibly through the medium of the haemolymph. The highest titres (up… CONTINUE READING
