Abstract

BACKGROUND:

The rhesus enteric caliciviruses (ReCVs) were recently described.

METHODS:

Prevalence of ReCV antibodies was tested in six species of captive non-human primates.

RESULTS:

High ReCV seroprevalence was revealed in rhesus and cynomolgus macaques.

CONCLUSIONS:

High rates of ReCV seroprevalence and diarrhea in juvenile macaques suggest that ReCVs may play a role in morbidity.
