Transmission and activation of cytomegalovirus with blood transfusion: a mouse model.


A mouse model that mimics many features of human cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections associated with transfusion and perfusion is described. The concept of antigenic activation of CMV was tested by infusion of blood from latently infected mice, which were found to be virus-negative by tissue culture asssay, into uninfected allogeneic and isogenic hosts.
