Excerpt
1. INTRODUCTION The term arthropod-borne was introduced in 1942 to describe members of the group of animal viruses then recognized as causing encephalitis. The concept (then, as now, epidemiological) was of a virus transmitted biologically (including multiplication in the vector : see section 2.1) by an arthropod to a vertebrate and principally, or to an important degree, maintained in nature in a cycle from arthropod to vertebrate to arthropod. These agents were believed, on the basis of early gradocol membrane filtration, to be very small ; those tested were inactivated by ether and all then recognized produced encephalitis on intracerebral (i.c.) inoculation into mice. A classification is at present under consideration.
