Detection of antibodies to feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) virus in cats using transmissible gastroenteritis virus as antigen and an electronmicroscopic search for FIP virus



Detection of antibodies to feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) virus in cats using transmissible gastroenteritis virus as antigen and an electronmicroscopic search for FIP virus



Southwestern Veterinarian 32(2): 109-112



An indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) test for the detection of feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) antibodies using swine cell cultures infected with transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE) virus is described. Of 145 cat serum samples tested 22% contained antibodies. All cats with confirmed FIP were positive by the IFA method. Half of the cats showing clinical signs of feline leukaemia virus infection had positive IFA titres to FIP.
