Arena Virus (Inclusion Body Disease / IBD)

Test number: 8497

Species
Boa , Python .
The Disease
Arenaviruses have recently been described as the likely cause of inclusion body disease (IBD) in boas and pythons. IBD is characterized by inclusion bodies found in cells of various tissues throughout the body. It appears to weaken the immune system of affected animals and is often associated with CNS signs as well as regurgitation in affected animals. In live animals, a combination of whole blood and esophageal swabs or, alternatively, a liver biopsy can be used for virus detection. In dead animals, brain and liver are particularly important for PCR testing. In pythons, the brain should always be tested.

our pcr detects definitely the CASV (california academy of sciences virus), GGV (golden gate virus) and CVV (collierville virus) strain. But a negative result can not exclude the presence of an IBD virus, because of the variability of arenavirus.

Clinical Signs
Inclusion body disease (IBD) (boas and pythons)
Description

The test is able to detect members of the currently known species in the genus reptarenavirus, which are: Giessen reptarenavirus, California reptarenavirus, Golden reptarenavirus, Golden Gate Virus, Ordinary reptardnavirus, and Rotterdam reptarenavirus, which are currently listed in ICTV. Of these, Giessen reptarenavirus is most common and has been hypothesized to be involved in disease development. There maybe other unclassified / mutated strains which may or may not be detected by the test.

Sample Requirements
EDTA blood, blood smear, tissue (e.g. liver, pancreas, kidney, or brain), swab (oesophagus). Please note that heparin blood isn't optimal sample however if you want to use blood and unable to obtain EDTA blood then we will accept heparin bllod sample.
Turnaround
