Abstract

Between 27 June 1997 and 16 May 1999, 423 rodents were collected from North Texas (Collin, Denton, and Grayson counties) by using Sherman live-traps (trapping success rate ~22%). Of the 423 rodents collected, 328 were tested for evidence of IgG antibodies to New World hantaviruses. Hantavirus antibodies were detected in 34 individuals (~10%). This is the first record of hantavirus antibody-positive rodents from the highly urbanized area of North Texas. Entre el 27 de Junio 1997 y el 16 de Mayo 1999, 423 roedores fueron colectados usando trampas Sherman de capturas en vivo (éxito de captura ~22%) en el Norte de Texas (condados Collin, Dentón, y Grayson). De los 423 roedores colectados, 328 roedores fueron puestos a prueba para evidenciar la presencia de anticuerpos IgG de Hantavirus del Nuevo Mundo. Los anticuerpos de Hantavirus fueron detectados en 34 individuos (~10%). Este es el primer registro de roedores con anticuerpo-positivo para Hantavirus de un área altamente urbanizada en el norte de Texas.
