Immunity against the GBV-B hepatitis virus in tamarins can prevent productive infection following rechallenge and is long-lived
Journal of medical virology, Volume 80, Issue 1, 2008, Pages 87-94.
GB virus-B (GBV-B) is the virus most closely related to hepatitis C virus (HCV). Thus, we have used GBV-B infection of tamarins, which develop acute hepatitis following experimental infection, as a surrogate model to study protective immunity. As challenge virus, we first produced a GBV-B pool from an infected tamarin, which was not infec...More
