It is now quite clear that this disease can be transmitted to man under natural conditions and therefore constitutes a public health problemSince 1917, when the first case of vesicular stomatitis was discovered in the laboratory, its presence in man has been repeatedly demonstrated by means of complement fixation tests and seroneutralizationIt would appear that positivity increases with the age of the individual. This was demonstrated by Shelokov, Peralta, and Galindo in 1961, when they examined 490 serum specimens collected from individuals living near an area in which the vesicular stomatitis virus (Indiana type) had been isolated from a mixture of phlebotomus containing 27 percent of neutralizing antibodies. It was observed that in persons under 10 years of age the positivity rate was up to 14 percent and up to 35 percent in persons over age thirtyThe author also describes the morphology and characteristics of the causative organism as well as the symptomatology of the disease as described by various authors.
