Characterization of a highly virulent feline calicivirus and attenuation of this virus.

Abstract

Feline calicivirus (FCV) is a common cause of upper respiratory and oral disease in cats. Highly virulent, systemic strains of FCV (vs FCV) have been recently described. These vs FCV isolates cause edema, cutaneous ulcers and high mortality in affected cats. This study reports a disease model with such a vs FCV isolate (FCV-33585). It also describes a full… (More)
