The discovery of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) has heightened interest in feline immunology, with FIV emerging as an animal model for HIV infection in humans. Researchers in the AIDS field and veterinary researchers alike will find this compilation of state-of-the-art studies on the principal small animal model for AIDS essential : Hardcover.

In Maya symposium was held in Scotland on the theme of feline immunology and immunodeficiency, and the production of this book was inspired by that meeting.

It contains contributions from many of the participants, with additional chapters from others who were either unable to attend the meeting or whose work came to the attention of the editors as a result of the meeting.

Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is a widespread lentivirus that infects domestic and wild cats. Infection with this virus results in progressive depletion of CD4 + T lymphocytes. The resulting disease in many respects resembles human acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) and is an.

Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is a member of the lentivirus subfamily of retroviruses. It is an RNA virus with outer envelope and nucleocapsid. FIV originally was isolated in from a cattery in northern California; however, retrospective assays of stored cat sera have shown that FIV has been widely distributed worldwide since at least the s.

Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is a lentivirus that affects cats worldwide, with % to % of felines being infected. FIV differs taxonomically from two other feline retroviruses, feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline foamy virus (FFV), and is more closely related to human immunodeficiency virus ().Within FIV, five subtypes have been identified based on nucleotide sequence Class: incertae sedis.

Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV Pet) was discovered in from a cattery of stray cats with high mortality rates caused by immunodeficiency-like diseases [].Both natural and experimental infections with FIV cause a major loss of CD3 + CD4 + T cells that precedes a protracted asymptomatic phase followed by a symptomatic phase consisting of immunodeficiency-associated diseases Cited by: Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is a naturally-occurring, large animal model of lentiviral-induced immunodeficiency syndrome, and has been used as a model of HIV pathogenesis and therapeutic.

Today we know it as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). A similar cellular picture is seen in some cases of feline leukemia and HTLV-1 infection, i.e. a selective loss of a specific class of cells giving rise to immune suppression, further suggesting that the cause of AIDS is a virus. Figure 3A Cysts of Pneumocystis carinii in AIDS.

Methenamine. Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is a retrovirus of the genus Lentivirus that is closely related to HIV, sharing a similar structure, life cycle and pathogenesis [Miller et al. For example, canine distemper virus infects and kills lymphocytes, causing a profound combined immunodeficiency in affected puppies.

This infection is associated with a progressive decline in immunoglobulin levels and increased susceptibility to organisms normally controlled by cellular immunity such as Pneumocystis and Toxoplasma.

The Book has an international team of authors all contributing to the investigation of the questions of what, why, how, when and where the immune system deviates from its normal function, what clinical consequences are manifested and is there a way to prevent and treat the immunodeficiency cases.

Hartnett B J et al () Bone marrow transplantation for canine X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency. Vet Immunol Immunopathol 69 (), PubMed. Abstract. The simian and feline immunodeficiency lentivirus infections of captive macaques and domestic cats (SIV and FIV, respectively) are excellent models for HIV infection of humans (Gardner and Luciw ).Among the animal lentiviruses, SIV is the most closely related to HIV and both SIV and FIV models manifest a disease pattern and viral encephalopathy with many similarities to that Cited by: Feline immunodeficiency virus is a retrovirus in the lentivirus subfamily.

The primary mode of transmission is through bite wounds. Because neutered cats fight much less (if at all) than intact cats, transmission of FIV can be significantly reduced through neuter programs.

Approximately to 3 percent of all healthy cats in the United States are infected with Feline Immunodeficiency Virus or FIV. Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is a lentivirus infecting different species of cat and causing, in some, a pathology similar to that of HIV-1 infection in humans [1,2].

feline immunodeficiency virus: a slow viral disease of Felidae with worldwide distribution; characterized by chronic immunosuppression and development of secondary opportunist infections and cancers. Primary route of transmission is through bite wounds, but transplacental and nursing transfer are other routes of transmission.

A hallmark clinical feature of human acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is the neuropsychiatric and cognitive deficits attending progression of the illness (Janssen et al. ; Navia et al. a).This severe neurologic disorder has been referred to as the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome dementia complex (ADC) (Navia et al.

a; Price and Perry ).Cited by: The Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), sometimes called the Feline AIDS Virus, is an important disease agent of the cat. It is likened to the AIDS virus which affects humans because of the similarities in the two diseases which result. Fortunately, most viruses are species specific.

This is the case with the human AIDS virus and with FIV. Comparative Immunology, Microbiology & Infectious Diseases aims to respond to the concept of "One Medicine" and to provide a venue for scientific exchange. Based on the concept of "Comparative Medicine" interdisciplinary cooperation between specialists in human and animal medicine is of mutual interest and benefit.

What is the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. FIV stands for “feline immunodeficiency virus,” just as HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. In fact, these two viruses are closely related and much of the general information that has become common knowledge for HIV also holds true for FIV.

One to three percent of healthy cats are infected with the feline immunodeficiency virus in the United States. Because the disease is most often transmitted from cat to cat through biting, indoor cats are much less likely to become infected than outdoor cats.

FIV can cause an acquired immunodeficiency syndrome that increases the risk of developing opportunistic infections, neurological diseases, and tumors.What is feline immunodeficiency?

First isolated infeline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is a retrovirus closely related to HIV. Most felids are susceptible to FIV, but humans are not. FIV is endemic in domestic cat populations worldwide (subtypes A and B are most common in Europe).
