Dear Collegues,

Sorry for cross-posting. We're pleased to announce a new publication on 
the current issue of the Journal of Clinical Microbiology 
(http://jcm.asm.org/content/51/2/708.long) which confirms the 
interspecies transmission of DMV from cetaceans to pinnipeds describing 
a clinical case occurred during the last DMV epidemics in the 
Mediterranean Sea (2007-2011).

      Abstract

During the second morbilliviral epidemic (2007-2011) in cetaceans along 
the Italian coastline, Dolphin Morbillivirus (DMV) was detected by 
molecular analyses in a captive harbor seal (Phoca vitulina) with 
pathological findings consistent with morbilliviral infection. This 
report confirms interspecies DMV transmission from cetaceans to pinnipeds.



Best regards
