The Feline Immunodeficiency Virus

  • Niels C. Pedersen
Chapter
Part of the The Viruses book series (VIRS)

Abstract

Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) was first isolated from a large multiple cat household in Petaluma, California, in 1986 (Pedersen et al., 1987). The discovery was prompted by an outbreak of acquired immunodeficiency-like disease among a large group of feline-leukemia-virus-negative cats housed in the same pen (Pedersen et al., 1987). Plasma and whole blood from three cats in this group were inoculated into two specific pathogen-free cats. The inoculated cats developed fever, leukopenia, and generalized lymphadenopathy after 4 to 6 weeks. A lentivirus was isolated in normal feline T-lymphocyte-enriched peripheral blood mononuclear cell cultures co-cultivated with similar cells from the two experimentally infected animals.
