Abstract

There have been two principal stimuli behind efforts to gain a better understanding of the arenaviruses. Four members of this group cause severe and sometimes fatal diseases in man; thus efforts have been made to acquire knowledge which could be used to aid in the preention and/ or treatment of these human ailments. These diseases, i.e., lymphocytic choriomeningitis, Argentine hemorrhagic fever, Bolivian hemorrhagic fever, and Lassa fever, represent zoonosis, and all except lymphocytic choriomeningitis occur in well-circumscribed geographic areas. Because of the limited geographic distribution of these diseases, research efforts devoted to this virus group have not been so intense as those devoted to other groups of viruses which produce disease worldwide.
