A group of 15 cats experimentally infected with a Swiss isolate of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and a group of 15 FIV-negative control cats were inoculated with an FeLV vaccine containing recombinant FeLV-envelope. High ELISA antibody titer developed after vaccination in FIV-positive and FIV-negative cats. Vaccinated and nonvaccinated controls were(More)
In an effort to induce a strong immune response that might protect against feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) challenge infection, three groups of five specified pathogen-free (spf) cats each were immunized subcutaneously with different FIV antigen preparations. Immunizations were done at weeks 0, 2, and 4 with 100 microg of recombinant SU from an FIV(More)
Feline infectious peritonitis virus (FIPV) is a coronavirus that induces a fatal systemic disease mediated by an inappropriate immune response. Most previous vaccination attempts against FIPV were unsuccessful because IgG antibodies against the surface protein enhance the infection. However, two studies have shown that poxvirus vectors (vaccinia WR and(More)
A recombinant retroviral subunit vaccine has been developed that successfully protects cats from infectious feline leukaemia virus (FeLV) challenge. The antigen used is a non-glycosylated protein derived from the envelope glycoprotein of FeLV subgroup A, expressed in Escherichia coli. This recombinant protein, rgp70D, includes the entire exterior envelope(More)
The authors report four cases of skeletal lesions associated with acute megakaryoblastic leukemia. In this particular form of the disease, the periostal appositions are more frequent and more severe than in other types of acute leukemia. A very marked osteolysis with true metaphyseal lacunar zones are also observed. These particular types of bone lesion are(More)
A new recombinant FeLV vaccine was evaluated in 30 specified pathogen-free cats 10 months of age cats. The vaccine consisted of the non-glycosylated FeLV envelope protein p45, aluminium hydroxide and a saponin adjuvant. The cats (n = 18) were vaccinated twice intramuscularly, 3 weeks apart. All animals were challenged intraperitoneally with FeLV subgroup A,(More)
