    Filoviridae () is a family of single-stranded negative-sense RNA viruses in the order Mononegavirales. Two members of the family that are commonly known are Ebola virus and Marburg virus. Both viruses, and some of their lesser known relatives, cause severe disease in humans and nonhuman primates in the form of viral hemorrhagic fevers.All filoviruses are classified by the US as select agents, by the World Health Organization as Risk Group 4 Pathogens (requiring Biosafety Level 4-equivalent containment), by the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases as Category A Priority Pathogens, and by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as Category A Bioterrorism Agents, and are listed as Biological Agents for Export Control by the Australia Group.

  1. filoviridae

    Filoviridae is a family of viruses, known for their filamentous, thread-like shape. This family includes Ebola and Marburg viruses, which can cause severe, often fatal, hemorrhagic fevers in humans and other mammals. The viruses are characterized by long, enveloped virions that may appear in the shape of a shepherd's crook or in the shape of a "U" or a "6". These viruses are typically spread through direct contact with bodily fluids of infected individuals or animals.

  1. Filoviridae

    The family Filoviridae is the taxonomic home of several related viruses that form filamentous virions. Two members of the family that are commonly known are Ebola virus and Marburg virus. Both viruses, and some of their lesser known relatives, cause severe disease in humans and nonhuman primates in the form of viral hemorrhagic fevers. All accepted members of the family are Select Agents, World Health Organization Risk Group 4 Pathogens, National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Category A Priority Pathogens, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Category A Bioterrorism Agents, and listed as Biological Agents for Export Control by the Australia Group. It is expected that "cuevaviruses", proposed to be additional members of the family, will be classified in a similar way in the near future.
