Abstract

To investigate the infection status and the spatial distribution of Tahyna virus infection among unknown fever cases in Xinjiang, China. Sera samples of unknown fever cases from Kashi in southern Xin-jiang and Yili in northern Xinjiang were tested against Tahyna virus by IFA. Partial positive cases were tested against Tahyna virus/Snowshoe hare virus/Inkoo virus parrelled. Finally, 742 sera samples of unknown fever cases were collected from Kashi, Southern Xinjiang in 2007-2008, the positive rate of IgM antibody against Tahyna virus was 5.3%, the positive rate of IgG antibody against Tahyna virus was 18.3%. 222 sera samples of unknown fever cases were collected from Yili, Northern Xinjiang in 2008, no positive case of IgM antibody against Tahyna was found. 10 cases showed antibody neutralization against Tahyna virus by plaque reduction neutralization test. Our results demonstrate that there is current infection and past infection of Tahyna virus among Southern Xinjiang residents.
