According to the public relations report of the University of Tehran, an article entitled “Simian Virus 40 DNA in Immunocompetent Children with Respiratory Diseases”, under the responsibility of Dr. Bahman Abedi Kiasari, a member of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, and the collaboration of international authors from Egypt and Brazil, was published in the world’s top virology journal of medical virology. It was published with an impact factor of 20.6 (twenty-six tenths).
Dr. Bahman Abedi Kiasri says: The virus (40 simian vacuolating virus) sv40 is a virus that creates vacuoles in monkeys, which was first transmitted to children in 1955 to 1963 through polio vaccines infected with this virus. The current isolation of this virus from children indicates that this virus is currently circulating in the human population. Its isolation in respiratory patients shows that the route of transmission of the virus to humans is probably respiratory and can be effective in causing upper and lower respiratory tract infections. In addition, this virus is also carcinogenic
According to the public relations report of the University of Tehran, this virus was also isolated in 2011 by Dr. Bahman Abedi Kiasri in England in transplant patients with functional kidney failure, and the report was published in the Scandinavian Journal of Infectious Diseases.
