Dear netters,

I am trying to develop an animal model in hamsters for coronavirus disease/
replication. If succesful, the animal will be used for CTL and other immuno-logical studies. The reason for hamsters is that, human adenovirus replicates
in hamsters, and I am interested in infecting hamsters with recombinant
adenovirus carrying coronavirus genes.
Does anybody know if there are Inbred, syngenic hamsters available, or
ever developed?
Any help would be appreciated.
