Métras R., Dommergues L., Ortiz K., Pannequin M., Schuler C., Roux P., Edmunds J.W., Keeling M.J., Cetre-Sossah C., Cardinale E.. 2017. Vector Borne and Zoonotic Diseases, 17 (5) : p. 358-360.

The potential role of Eulemur fulvus (brown lemur) in the epidemiology of Rift Valley fever (RVF) in Mayotte, during an interepidemic period, was explored. In February and March 2016, 72 animals were blood sampled and tested for RVF. No evidence of RVF genome or antibodies was found in the samples. The role of other wild mammals on the island should, however, be further investigated. (Résumé d'auteur)
