Schmallenberg virus : technical and scientific studies

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

Schmallenberg virus primarily infects domestic and wild ruminants. Cattle and sheep seem to be the most susceptible species. Goats, pigs and camelids seem to be less susceptible. In pregnant cattle and sheep, the virus can infect multiple organs of the un-borne fetus. However, this infection often does not cause major lesions and infrequently leads to malformations.
