Junin virus infection of Calithrix jacchus: haematological findings.Acta Virol. 1982 Jul; 26(4):270-8.AV
Haematological changes produced by experimental Junin virus infection of a platyrrhine monkey, Callithrix jacchus were studied. Normocytic and normochromic anaemia appeared after 7 days post infection (p. i.), and increased steadily until day 21 p. i. Reticulocytes and circulating erythroblasts were elevated during the anaemia, reached a peak on day 7 p. i., and disappeared later. Platelets and leukocytes showed a significant decrease from days 14 and 18 p. i., respectively. These alterations could be attributed to the damage of bone marrow and lymphatic tissue.
