  1. Sabia virus incident at Yale University.

    Article - En anglais

    An incident involving a human exposure to a newly isolated arenavirus, Sabia virus, in the Yale Arbovirus Research Unit occurred at Yale University on August 8,1994.

    A senior-level visiting research scientist was exposed to Sabia virus while purifying the virus from a large volume of tissue culture fluid.

    The exposure resulted in development of a Sabia virus infection followed by recovery of the patient.

    The incident resulted in a comprehensive review by a Yale faculty committee and an external expert committee.

    As a result, a number of new practices and procedures were added to Yale's biosafety policy for investigating infectious agents in BL-3 facilities.
