The contemporary circulation of multiple bluetongue virus (BTV) serotypes or strains within the same territory can imply the co-infection of the ruminant and/or the vector populations. As a consequence, the clinical and pathological outcomes of co-infections as well as the biological properties of the viral progeny could be influenced and exhibit relevant variation. In this study, two independent co-infection experiments were carried out in calves using European strains of BTV serotypes 1 and 8 (BTV-1 and BTV-8, respectively), with the objective of studying the clinical and virological outc…
