In this retrospective study, 1205 client-owned cats in western Canada were tested for FIV antibodies. 5.5% of the cats were FIV-antibody positive. Infected cats were more likely to be males, to have bite wounds, and were older than antibody-negative cats. The survival time of FIV-positive cats was not significantly
Looking for a FIV vaccine
Looking for a FIV vaccine, Miller C, Emanuelli M, et al. FIV vaccine with receptor epitopes results in neutralizing antibodies, vaccine that will confer significant protective immunity against the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV, with genetic similarities to FIV. Utilizing receptor-mediated entry to cells, both FIV and HIV infect, immunopathogenic syndromes in infected individuals. The currently available commercial FIV vaccine contains inactivated dual subtype (A and D) FIV-infected cells, and its efficacy and usefulness
Lactoferrin for Cats with FIV
Lactoferrin for Cats with FIV, Med Sci 70(5): 429-35.Cats with feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) infection have chronic, by these researchers showed that oral administration of bovine LF improved clinical signs in FIV-infected, in the asymptomatic carrier and the AIDS-related complex phases of FIV. The results suggest that therapy with bovine LF may help modulate immune dysfunction in cats in the terminal stages of FIV infection, and further, immunodeficiency virus (FIV)-positive and FIV-negative cats."

Risk Factors for FIV Infection
Risk Factors for FIV Infection, . 467-473.This study determined the prevalence of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) within a group of cats, tested for FIV using a rapid enzyme immunoassay antibody test. The overall prevalence of positive, %. Male cats were found to be approximately three times more likely than female cats to be FIV positive. The previous history of the cat was also shown to be associated with FIV status, where cats admitted from stray or feral backgrounds were approximately three times more likely to be FIV positive than
Screening tests for FeLV and FIV
Screening tests for FeLV and FIV, of cats infected with Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) is critical, .” This investigation compared the performance of four such kits: SNAP® Combo FeLV Ag/FIV Ab Test3 (bidirectional flow ELISA), WITNESS® FeLV-FIV Test Kit4 (lateral flow immunochromatography with colloidal gold), Anigen® Rapid FIV Ab/FeLV Ag Test Kit5 (lateral flow immunochromatography with colloidal gold), and VetScan® Feline FeLV/FIV Rapid Test6 (lateral flow immunochromatography with colloidal gold). 146 FeLV
FIV and Kidney Disease in Cats
FIV and Kidney Disease in Cats, virus (FIV) is also common in these cats, raising the question of whether the two are related. To investigate a potential association between chronic kidney disease and FIV in cats in Australia, of CKD. All cats were tested for FIV antibodies and information on age, breed and gender was gathered, analysis was performed to investigate any relationship between CKD and FIV, and with the other variables, with FIV than cats without CKD. It was not possible to determine if infection with FIV occurred before
FIV in African lions
FIV in African lions, of BTB every year in KNP. Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) infects domestic cats and at least 20 other species of non-domestic felids around the world. FIV subtype Ple is thought to have been, in blood test results, with FIV having a greater impact than BTB. However, it did not appear that these co, with HIV and M. tuberculosis. This may be due to a different pathogenesis of FIV in African lions than HIV in humans. [MK] See also: Troyer JL, Roelke ME, Jespersen JM, et al. FIV diversity: FIV Ple
Prevalence of FeLV and FIV in Canada
Prevalence of FeLV and FIV in Canada, ) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) are two of the most important infectious diseases of cats worldwide. Many studies have evaluated the prevalence of FeLV and FIV in North American cats, but very, requested to submit the results of FeLV and FIV testing performed between Aug. 1 and Nov. 15, 2007, for 11,144 cats of which 4.3% were positive for FIV and 3.4% were positive for FeLV. The seroprevalence of FeLV and FIV in this study was higher than in a recent similar study of predominantly US cats (FIV
Diagnosing FIV infection in FIV-vaccinated and unvaccinated cats using saliva
Diagnosing FIV infection in FIV-vaccinated and unvaccinated cats using saliva, Westman ME, Malik R, et al. Diagnosing feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) in FIV-vaccinated and FIV-unvaccinated cats using saliva. Comp Immunol Microbiol Infect Dis. 2016 Jun;46:66-72. Feline Immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is an important pathogen causing lifelong infection in cats and for which, the usefulness of several point of care kits for detecting infection with FIV using saliva as a test sample. Two point-of-care FIV antibody test kits (Witness FeLV/FIV and Antigen Rapid FIV/FeLV) could
