Abstract

Mild, transient proteinuria and azotemia were produced in three cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) and a chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) following intravenous inoculation with Prospect Hill virus, a hantavirus isolated from meadow voles in the United States. This is the first demonstration of an acute nephropathy in nonhuman primates with the viruses causing hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome.
