 More About Paramyxovirus
Paramyxovirus infection occurs in pigeons as an acute disease, taking an epidemic course.
The paramyxovirus is related to the Newcastle disease pathogen, but not identical.
Visibly affected birds should be excluded from emergency vaccination and removed from the flock, since by shedding the virus they put the remainder of the flock at risk until vaccine protection is acquired.

 Paramyxovirus
The Paramyxovirus of pigeons is closely related to the virus of atypical fowl pest (Newcastle Disease).
A pigeon suspected of Paramyxovirus is put into an unaccustomed position, for example it is placed on its side, or is frightened by the clapping of one's hands.
If Paramyxovirus is suspected, precautionary measures should be taken which slow down or prevent the spread of the infection, until the position has been clarified.

 Robert A. Lamb
Our laboratory is investigating the molecular structure and the mechanism of replication of influenza A, B, and C viruses and the paramyxovirus family of viruses, often using as a prototype parainfluenza virus 5 (PIV5), formerly called SV5.
Influenza A and B viruses cause important diseases in humans and animals, with tremendous socioeconomic consequences, for influenza continues to occur in regular epidemics and occasional pandemics and is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality.
Recently, we have found that activation of the paramyxovirus fusion protein is modulated by inside-out signaling from the cytoplasmic tail.

 HHMI News: Viral Harpoon Reveals Ancestry of Measles, Mumps Viruses
The scientists crystallized the fusion protein of a paramyxovirus that infects monkeys and used x-ray crystallography to determine the proteins three-dimensional structure.
Although the scientists studied the fusion protein of only one paramyxovirus, they are confident that the structural finding applies to the entire paramyxovirus family.
Specifically, determining the three-dimensional structure of the fusion protein sheds new light on the key event in paramyxovirus infection when the virus unfolds itself to reveal a spikelike protein that is launched into the gel-like outer membrane of the target cell.

 RKI Isolation and molecular characterization of a novel cytopathogenic paramyxovirus from tree shrews
A cytopathic infectious agent was isolated from the kidneys of an apparently healthy tree shrew (Tupaia belangeri) that had been captured in the area around Bangkok.
Paramyxovirus-like pleomorphic enveloped particles and helical nucleocapsids were observed by electron microscopy and accordingly the infectious agent was termed Tupaia paramyxovirus (TPMV).
Highest homologies were detected between TPMV and Hendra virus (equine morbillivirus), which recently emerged in Australia, causing outbreaks of fatal respiratory and neurological disease in horses and humans.

Severe acute respiratory syndrome - worldwide --------------------------------------------- We are able to confirm that the patient whose NPA [nasophayngeal aspirate] was found to contain paramyxovirus is a health care worker with SARS who was exposed to the index patient in the medical ward associated with the outbreak at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Hong Kong.
We also thank Dr Doerr and colleagues for submitting their first hand report of the electron microscopy identification of paramyxovirus particles from plasma in one of the cases of SARS undergoing hospital treatment in Germany.
As their report states this may be indicative of a viremia (circulation of the virus in the blood stream consistent with an acute infection with the virus).

 UK Parakeet Fanciers In Panic Over New Budgie Virus
Hello Jeff - We may have a new paramyxovirus outbreak infecting Budgerigars aka (variety of small parrot.) There has been no confirmation as to whether this is a brand new paramyxovirus disease or older one, perhaps, newcastle or avian influenza.
There are at least 9 types of paramyxovirus and in many of these there are a large number of subtypes, all of which can infect birds.
The classical type affecting budgerigars is type 5 (also known as Kinitachi virus) which caused high mortality in aviaries in Japan in the mid 1970s; there was also a small outbreak of this in the UK in 1993.

 A NOVEL PARAMYXOVIRUS PNEUMONIA OF PIGS AND ITS TRANSMISSION TO HUMANS
A new clinicopathological disorder associated with a paramyxovirus infection in pigs and humans has been identified as Nipah virus disease in Malaysia.
This new Malaysian paramyxovirus first isolated by a Malaysian scientist in University of Malaya was referred to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Fort Collins.
The story of this peculiar new virus in Malaysia was indeed warfare with the unknown, human tragedy and most of all it posed a serious threat to the very survival of the swine industry.

 SARS Is NOT Naturally-Occuring
The multiple press releases related to the identification of a coronavirus continue to be promising, (especially if there has been genetic sequencing of the virus), yet again caution needs to be exerted until further confirmation that this agent is in fact the etiologic agent of SARS.
[Two of the laboratories that originally suggested that SARS was associated with infection by an unspecified paramyxovirus have now come into line with the CDC verdict that the etiologic agent has the characteristics of a member of the genus _Coronavirus_ of the family _Coronaviridae_.
Until the full details of the scientific evidence become available, however, the final verdict will remain in doubt in view of the earlier contrary reports from Canada that the recently characterized human metapneumovirus may be the etiologic agent.
