Background Info

Ectromelia Virus is a large, oval shaped DNA virus of the family Poxviridae, genus Orthopoxvirus. Transmission of Ectromelia Virus, also known as mousepox, occurs primarily through exposure of skin abrasions to a contaminated environment. Approximately 7-10 days after infection, skin lesions develop and shed additional virus to the environment. Severe necrosis of the liver, spleen, thymus, and lymph nodes will occur in acute cases. Morbidity can vary in laboratory colonies depending on environmental factors.  Certain strains of mice have very high mortality rates associated with mousepox. Mice are the only natural hosts of this virus.
