Isolation and identification of feline calicivirus
and feline herpesvirus in Southern Brazil.
Research work performed by BluScientific Test Data at Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland showed that VANTOCIL(TM) was effective within one minute in controlling Feline calicivirus
in the presence of high levels of organic material.
There are effective vaccines for a number of causes of upper respiratory infections in cats (including feline calicivirus
and feline herpesvirus).
African lions (Panthera leo) are susceptible to viral diseases of domestic carnivores, including feline calicivirus
In March 2003, AVI completed a second preclinical trial against feline calicivirus
in mature cats.
The American Association of Feline Practitioners' vaccine guidelines consider vaccination against feline panleukopenia virus, feline herpes virus, feline calicivirus
and rabies virus to be core vaccines.
To screen for additional infections that might influence the health and immune status of the cats, we obtained 64 additional pharyngeal swabs on day 29 from cats with upper respiratory symptoms and tested them for nucleic acids specific for feline herpesvirus 1 (FHV-1)--and feline calicivirus
AVI's antiviral research program has produced antisense drugs shown to be active against a range of single-stranded RNA viruses, including West Nile virus, feline calicivirus
, hepatitis C virus and murine hepatitis virus in preclinical testing.
About 80 percent of feline upper respiratory infections are caused by one of two viruses: feline herpesvirus (FHV), also known as feline rhinotracheitis virus (FRV), and feline calicivirus
The family Caliciviridae contains 4 genera, Sapovirus, Norovirus, Lagovirus, and Vesivirus, which include sapovirus (SaV), norovirus (NOV), rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus, and feline calicivirus
AVI's antiviral research program has produced antisense drugs active in preclinical testing against West Nile virus, feline calicivirus
, hepatitis C virus and murine hepatitis virus.
An estimated 40 percent of cases are caused by feline herpesvirus (FHV), which is also known as feline rhinotracheitis virus (FRV), and about 40 percent are caused by feline calicivirus
Identification of a protein linked to the genomic and subgenomic mRNAs of feline calicivirus
and its role in translation.
Unfortunately, the cause of this condition is not always clear, but feline calicivirus
has been speculated to play a part in some cases.
