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).

a captive harbor seal (Phoca vitulina)*. J. Clin. Microbiol. 2013,
51(2):708. DOI: 10.1128/JCM.02710-12.
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.
