Seroepidemiology of feline infectious peritonitis virus infections using transmissible gastroenteritis virus as antigen



Seroepidemiology of feline infectious peritonitis virus infections using transmissible gastroenteritis virus as antigen



Zentralblatt für Veterinarmedizin. Reihe B. Journal of Veterinary Medicine. Series B 24(10): 835-841



By indirect immunofluorescence on pig thyroid cells infected with transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE) virus of swine, antibodies were detected in serum from cats after experimental infection with feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) virus material. Also antibodies could be demonstrated in body fluids from 21 field cases where FIP had been diagnosed by clinical and PM examination and in most serum samples (91%) from catteries with a FIP history. In randomly selected open population samples, 16% of seropositive animals were detected whereas none of 109 serum samples from a barrier-contained closed breeding colony gave a positive reaction. No TGE neutralizing antibodies could be found in serum samples or peritoneal fluids. The possibility of an antigenic relationship between FIP and TGE viruses is discussed.
