National Institute for Virology and Department of Virology, University of the Witwatersrand, Sandringham, South Africa
Ann N Y Acad Sci 951:143-52. 2001..3-100%. This suggests that the viral enzooticity does not depend on annual importation of virus in migrant birds...
- Comparison of three methods for determining transmission rates in vector competence studies with Culex univittatus and West Nile and Sindbis virusesA J Cornel
Department of Virology, University of the Witwatersrand, National Institute for Virology, Sandringham, South Africa
J Am Mosq Control Assoc 5:70-2. 1989..It was concluded that capillary feeding is an acceptable alternative to feeding on hamsters for determining transmission rates for Cx. univittatus with West Nile and Sindbis viruses...
- Experimental assessment of bedbugs (Cimex lectularius and Cimex hemipterus) and mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti formosus) as vectors of human immunodeficiency virusP G Jupp
Department of Virology, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa
AIDS 1:171-4. 1987..It is concluded that Ae. aegypti formosus and probably other mosquitoes are not mechanical vectors of HIV and that such transmission is also unlikely to occur in bedbugs under natural conditions...
- Aedes furcifer and other mosquitoes as vectors of chikungunya virus at Mica, northeastern Transvaal, South AfricaP G Jupp
Arbovirus Unit, National Institute for Virology, Sandringham, South Africa
J Am Mosq Control Assoc 6:415-20. 1990..It is concluded that Ae. furcifer is an epidemic-epizootic vector which does not maintain the virus at Mica and that no other mosquito species could have been important vectors...
