Abstract

Hantaan, Seoul, and Puumala viruses were transmitted to 12-16-week-old female Wistar Rattus norvegicus by inhalation. The rodent infectious dose for each virus by intramuscular inoculation and by inhalation was determined, as was the infectious dose for Vero E-6 vells by direct plaque assay.
