Zusammenfassung

Die Virusforschung hat gerade im Laufe der letzten Jahre durch die Vervollkommnung der virologischen Forschungsmethoden und den Ausbau der serologischen Diagnostik eine ganze Reihe neuer Erreger entdecken können. Dadurch wurden Krankheitsbilder als Einheit erkannt, die vorher nicht als solche identifiziert wurden. Eine ganze Anzahl der auf diesem Gebiet der Arboviren entdeckten Erreger spielt allerdings für den europäischen Raum bisher keine große Rolle. Immerhin aber ist, um nur ein Beispiel zu nennen, die Auffindung des West-Nile-Virus bei Nagern in der Tschechoslowakei eine Beobachtung, die zeigt, daß diese in tropischen Gegenden zu Krankheitszuständen führenden Viren auch in Zentraleuropa auftreten können, wenn man sie hier auch bisher nur bei kleinen Nagern gefunden hat.
