It is well established that the large group of coronavirus induce, in a variety of hosts, a spectrum of acute diseases. As summarized in Table 1, it is shown that both murine and feline coronaviruses induce infection in several different organs of the host, when for example these agents lead in man, cattle, dogs or rats only to single disease manifestation. Current interest in the biology of coronaviruses centers around the mechanism of the pathogenesis as well as virus-host interactions which lead to subacute or chronic diseases.
