Viraemia was studied in adult Clethrionomys glareolus subcutaneously infected with 12 strains of tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) virus isolated in western and eastern foci of TBE. Nine strains caused viraemia regularly or irregularly, reaching titres higher than the threshold level of TBE virus infectivity for its vectors, ixodid ticks (2.5 -- 4.5 log LD50/0,03 ml) and three strains caused lower levels of hiraemia (0.4 -- 1.5 log LD50/0.03 ml). The ability or inability of various TBE virus… CONTINUE READING
