Four Canine Viruses in Arctic Fox from the NPR-A

The primary research goal is to determine prevalence of four major canine viruses: Rabies, Canine Distemper Virus (CDV), Canine Parvovirus (CPV), and Canine Adenovirus (CAV) among the arctic fox population of the National Petroleum Reserve, Alaska (NPR-A) and other outlying regions of northern Alaska. Two of these viruses, rabies and distemper, are known zoonotics (able to be transferred from animals to humans). Various techniques will be used to diagnose viruses in tissues collected from the years 2005 through 2011. Results gained from these tests will be important in determining whether arctic foxes are reservoirs for each particular virus and if they have the potential to transmit these viruses to other susceptible animals, including humans, in the arctic environment.
