Isolation of a T-lymphotropic virus from domestic cats with an immunodeficiency-like syndrome.
A highly T-lymphotropic virus was isolated from cats in a cattery in which all the animals were seronegative for feline leukemia virus. A number of cats in one pen had died and several had anExpand

Epidemiologic and clinical aspects of feline immunodeficiency virus infection in cats from the continental United States and Canada and possible mode of transmission.
The epidemiologic features of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) infection were evaluated in 2,765 cats from the United States and Canada. Of these cats, 2,254 were considered by veterinarians to beExpand

Development of IL-2-independent feline lymphoid cell lines chronically infected with feline immunodeficiency virus: importance for diagnostic reagents and vaccines.
Two interleukin 2 (IL-2)-independent feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) producer cell lines (FL-4 and FL-6) were produced by selecting cells from an IL-2-dependent culture of mixed peripheral bloodExpand
