Abstract

Antibodies recognizing Borna disease virus (BDV) antigens were first demonstrated in the blood of psychiatric patients approximate to 15 years ago. Since that time, a highly controversial debate arose whether BDV infects humans and whether it causes psychiatric disorders. In this review, we critically discuss the results of numerous studies that assessed this possibility by using virological and serological methods. We conclude that there is presently no strong experimental evidence supporting the notion that BDV is a human pathogen. The possibility remains, however, that an antigenically related agent is associated with human psychiatric disorders. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
