Reoviruses are ether-resistant icosahedral viruses 60 to seventy five mp in diameter which comprise ribonucleic acid. they've been recovered from guy and reduce animals and are ubiquitous of their geographic distribution. at the moment, the significance of those viruses as a explanation for human or animal affliction remains to be principally unknown. because of having a couple of strange features, reoviruses have attracted the eye of many employees within the rather couple of minutes considering that they have been first well-known. for instance, investigators drawn to the molecular elements of virology were attracted by way of the bizarre double-helical ribonucleic acid of excessive molecular weight which reoviruses own, whereas these drawn to epidemiology were attracted by way of the incidence of it appears exact viruses in either guy and an strangely big variety of decrease animals. This com­ pilation relies on details on hand to the writer as of October 31, 1966. II. historical past The time period "reqvirus" was once proposed in 1959 (SABIN, 1959) as a gaggle identify for a few viruses then categorised (SABIN, 1956; RAMOS-ALvAREz and SABIN, 1958) as being exact with, or regarding, ECHO style lO virus.
