Role of recent vaccination in production of false-positive coronavirus antibody titers in cats



Role of recent vaccination in production of false-positive coronavirus antibody titers in cats



Journal of Clinical Microbiology 19(3): 442-445



An association has been suggested between recent vaccination of cats and the presence of elevated background (i.e. anti-cell culture) reactivity in serum, as detected with a kinetics based enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (KELA) for coronavirus antibodies. Among 40 cats of known vaccination history, a highly significant relationship was found between the interval from vaccination to the time of serum sampling and the presence of elevated background reactivity.
