Part Description

LP17704-5   Lassa virus
Lassa fever is an acute viral hemorrhagic fever first described in 1969 in the Nigerian town of Lassa in the Yedseram River valley. Clinical cases of the disease had been known for over a decade earlier but not connected with this viral pathogen.The infection is endemic in West African countries, causing many deaths.
