Camelpox virus


The CMLV dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Camelpox virus detection by using qPCR. The Camelpox virus, that causes Camelpox, is an Orthopoxvirus often affecting members of family Camelidae. However, recent studies show that the disease can be transmitted to both humans and arthropods. The incubation period of Camelpox virus is between 3 and 15 days. The resulting infection can be classified as acute or generalized. Generalized infections are usually found in camels over the age of three without treatment, the animal will generally recover from the infection in 4 to 6 weeks. Acute infections are usually found in camels under the age of three, and result in mild to severe systemic infections. A large proportion of camels acutely infected with Camelpox virus die, although death is often attributed to a secondary infection. Camelpox virus is endemic throughout the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.
