The International Catalog of Arboviruses Including Certain Other Viruses of Vertebrates
is a registry for the benefit of those studying arboviruses. The Subcommittee on
Information Exchange (SIE) of the American Committee on Arthropod-Borne Viruses
(ACAV) is responsible for the dissemination of all data submitted. The Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) maintains the Arbovirus Catalog.
The Catalog is meant primarily for the description of those viruses biologically
transmitted by arthropods in nature and actually or potentially infectious for humans
or domestic animals. The criteria for these qualifications are liberally interpreted.
Viruses which are antigenically related to known arthropod-transmitted viruses or
which have other characteristics suggesting that they belong in this category of
viruses are accepted for registration. In addition, a limited number of viruses
of vertebrates that are not normally transmitted by arthropods, but which may be
of particular interest to arbovirologists for a variety of reasons, may be considered
