Overview of Simian Viruses and Recognized Virus Diseases and Laboratory Support for the Diagnosis of Viral Infections

  • Seymour S. Kalter
Part of the Proceedings in Life Sciences book series (LIFE SCIENCES)


A phylogenetic relationship to the human is often suggested as the reason for selecting a particular simian host, such as the chimpanzee, for studies on human diseases. It is thought that the use of another primate permits the extrapolation of more meaningful data than those derived from other species of animals. However, there is more to selecting an appropriate nonhuman primate model than phylogenetic relatedness. Two widely separated species, the chimpanzee and, with a few exceptions, the marmoset, are highly susceptible to hepatitis A, while the rhesus monkey is not. Therefore, care in selection of the most appropriate model for the study of a particular disease is vital to the success of any research program.
