Abstract

In an experiment using ten boars, the distribution of classical swine fever virus (CSFV) was determined in the male reproductive tract by hybridization over a period of 120 days after intranasal inoculation. CSFV was detected in the testicular tissue of infected boars. Viral nucleic acid was localized to spermatogonia, spermatocytes and spermatids but was not detected in the epithelia of the prostate, epididymis or bulbourethral gland. Sections from control, CSFV-negative, pigs showed no hybridization signals for CSFV. The demonstration that CSFV infects the spermatogonia (and their progeny) suggests that this may serve as a primary reservoir for the venereal spread of CSFV.
