Oral health and retrovirus status in cats
throughout North America. Cats with a known history of FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) vaccination, for feline leukemia (FeLV) or FIV was associated with naturally occurring gingivitis, periodontitis, gingivostomatitis (FCGS) were assigned to the stomatitis group. Each cat was tested for FeLV and FIV, , 237 (4.6%) were FIV positive and 186 (3.6%) were FeLV positive; 12 (0.2%) were seropositive, . A relationship between age and oral health was found in the FIV positive group, so this group was divided
Follow-up on long-term antiretroviral therapy for cats infected with feline immunodeficiency virus
to the relatively low severity of FIV infection. In some cases, however, FIV may lead to major clinical, followed by 3TC in FIV infected cats, and monitored for the development of resistance. 4 cats naturally infected with FIV were followed for a several year period. Cats were indoor only and tested, for 5-6 years, and then transitioned to AZT+3TC for an additional 3 years. FIV positive untreated cats and FIV negative cats were used as controls. Hematologic parameters, FIV viral load, and CD4
Retroviruses and Cat Bite Wounds
immunodeficiency virus (FIV) at the time of presentation. Veterinarians were asked to retest cats 60 days later to determine if seronegative cats became positive after the high-risk event. The FeLV-FIV status of 96, seropositive for FeLV and/or FIV. Risk factors associated with seropositive status included age (adult, . Of these cats, 5.2% that were initially seronegative for FIV seroconverted. This study determined that a high, was low. Clearly, the FeLV-FIV status of cats with fight wounds should be determined at the time
Treatment for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus Infection
Fogle JE, Tompkins WA, Campbell B et al: Fozivudine tidoxil as single-agent therapy decreases plasma and cell-associated viremia during acute feline immunodeficiency virus infection, J Vet Intern Med 25:413, 2011. Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is a natural lentivirus infection of domestic, drugs with fewer side effects for FIV treatment, the authors evaluated a compound related to ZDV, at lowering viral load the first 2 weeks of FIV infection and may decrease early FIV- associated

All patients, except for five, of these agents: retroviruses (feline leukemia, FeLV; and feline immunodeficiency virus, FIV, : FeLV 2.7%, FIV 7.3%, FCoV 34.7%, T. gondii23.7%, Bartonella spp. 43.2%; there was a combined, , and five ultimately were diagnosed with feline infectious peritonitis (FIP); the remaining 38/44, (17/38) were tested in some way for all five non-fungal infectious agents.

Understanding Feline Immunodeficiency Virus Infection
Grant, C. K., E. A. Fink, et al. (2009). "Improved health and survival of FIV-infected cats is associated with the presence of autoantibodies to the primary receptor, CD134." Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106(47): 19980-5.Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is an important pathogen of cats, causing lifelong infection and ultimately death from immunosuppression. These researchers examined antibody levels to various viral and cellular proteins in stored serum samples collected from FIV-infected cats
