Eight different tests for antibodies to feline coronavirus (FCoV) were evaluated for attributes that are important in situations in veterinary practice. We compared four indirect immunofluorescent antibody tests (IFAT), one enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) (FCoV Immunocomb; Biogal) and three rapid immunochromatographic (RIM) tests against a panel of samples designated by consensus as positive or negative. Specificity was 100% for all but the two IFATs based on transmissible… Expand
Development of a recombinase polymerase amplification fluorescence assay to detect feline coronavirus
TLDR
A rapid recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA) detection method that can detect FCoV within 15 min at 39°C is developed and evaluated and provides an efficient, rapid, and sensitive detection method for F CoV. Expand
Discrepancies between feline coronavirus antibody and nucleic acid detection in effusions of cats with suspected feline infectious peritonitis
TLDR
Combining the two methods, i.e., antibody and RNA detection would help improving the intra-vitam diagnosis of effusive FIP. Expand
Diagnosis of Feline Infectious Peritonitis: A Review of the Current Literature
TLDR
This review focuses on all important steps every veterinary practitioner has to deal with and new diagnostic tests that can be considered when encountering a cat with suspected FIP with the aim to establish a definitive diagnosis. Expand

TLDR
This review provides a comprehensive overview of how to approach the diagnosis of FIP, focusing on the tests available to the veterinary practitioner and recently published evidence supporting their use. Expand
REACHING FOR A DIAGNOSIS OF FIP
THE COMPLEX RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FELINE CORONAVIRUS AND FELINE INFECTIOUS PERITONITIS (FIP) Feline coronavirus (FCoV) infection is very common in cats; around 40% of the domestic cat population hasExpand
Differential recognition of peptides within feline coronavirus polyprotein 1 ab by sera from healthy cats and cats with feline infectious peritonitis
TLDR
Two peptides in the nsp3 region encoding the papain 1 and 2 proteases were identified and reacted equally with positive sera from healthy cats and cats with feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), while peptide 16433 was recognized predominantly by FIP-affected cats. Expand
Diagnosis of non-effusive feline infectious peritonitis by reverse transcriptase quantitative PCR from mesenteric lymph node fine-needle aspirates
TLDR
In cases with a high index of suspicion of disease, RT-qPCR targeting FCoV in MLN FNA can provide important information to support the ante-mortem diagnosis of non-effusive FIP. Expand
Feline infectious peritonitis: answers to frequently asked questions concerning FIP and coronavirus

TLDR
Questions about FCoV and FIP that are likely to be asked of, and by, a veterinary nurse will be addressed. Expand
Immunopathology, host-virus genome interactions, and effective vaccine development in SARS-CoV-2
TLDR
The aim of this review article is to explore recent updates on SARS-COV-2 in the context of pathogenesis during disease progression, and innate acquired mechanisms of defense, including advances in diagnostics, susceptibility, and severity of host-virus genome interactions. Expand
Comparison of three blood transfusion guidelines applied to 31 feline donors to minimise the risk of transfusion-transmissible infections
TLDR
To reduce the risk of TTI, sensitive tests are needed and the choice of the best protocol is a critical step in improving blood safety, the cost and time of the screening procedures may be reduced if appropriate tests are selected. Expand

Evaluation of an in-practice test for feline coronavirus antibodies
TLDR
It was found that the in-practice test results were significantly correlated with IFA titres but the degree of correlation was not likely to be clinically useful, and positive results would be of limited value in monitoring FCoV infection in healthy cats as the antibody titre could not be reliably compared with those obtained with I FA.

TLDR
Considering the cross-reactivity of FCoV type I and type II, ELISA was able to detect antibodies against both serotypes, allowing the use of the assay as a reference test for sera screening, and indicates that FCoVs are common in southern Italian cat populations. Expand
Samples with high virus load cause a trend toward lower signal in feline coronavirus antibody tests
TLDR
It is concluded that falsely low or negative FCoV antibody tests can occur in samples rich in virus. Expand
Feline Coronavirus Serotypes 1 and 2: Seroprevalence and Association with Disease in Switzerland
TLDR
It is concluded that a vaccine against FCoV should be based on F coV type 1-related antigens and that for serodiagnosis of F covirus infection TGEVshould be used to attain the highest diagnostic efficiency. Expand
Quarantine protects Falkland Islands (Malvinas) cats from feline coronavirus infection
TLDR
The F CoV/ FIP-free status of the Falkland Islands cats should be maintained by FCoV testing incoming cats, however, ANA can complicate interpretation of IFA tests. Expand
Feline infectious peritonitis: a worldwide serosurvey.
TLDR
The antibody pattern in randomly collected solitary cats, in catteries, and cats with clinical FIP showed characteristic differences in titer and incidence, and the implications for the epizootiology of FIP are discussed. Expand
Detection of transmissible gastroenteritis virus neutralising antibody in cats
TLDR
Gel filtration of feline sera and peritoneal fluid demonstrated high levels of the neutralising activity in the area corresponding to 7S IgG, which could be removed by absorption with specific anti-IgG serum and these properties are suggested to be consistent with those of antibody. Expand
A study of naturally occurring feline coronavirus infections in kittens
TLDR
In this survey, cases of feline infectious peritonitis occurred in kittens from households where the initial presentation had been enteritis and vice versa, and no difference in epidemiology could be found. Expand
Seroprevalence study of feline coronavirus in owned and feral cats in Sydney, Australia.
TLDR
The significant relationship between the breed of the cat and the FCoV antibody titre further supports the notion, proposed previously by the authors, that breed related differences exist in the immunological response to F coV infection. Expand
Use of a reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction for monitoring the shedding of feline coronavirus by healthy cats
TLDR
The pattern of shedding of feline coronavirus (FCoV) was established in 155 naturally infected pet cats from 29 households over periods of up to five years, with a correlation between shedding and antibody titre but the cats could remain seropositive for some time after they had ceased shedding virus.
