Abstract

A filterable ether-sensitive agent was isolated from a pool of ticks collected during September 1960 from cattle in the Thogoto forest near Nairobi, Kenya. The pool consisted of and . The agent is apparently antigenically unrelated to 75 known arboviruses and is considered to be a previously undescribed virus, which has been named Thogoto virus. High degrees of immunity were found in livestock in some areas of East Africa.
