Neutralizing feature of commercially available feline calicivirus (FCV) vaccine immune sera against FCV field isolates. (1/88)Four types of commercially available feline calicivirus (FCV) vaccine were compared in terms of their efficacy on the basis of the ability of the sera of specific-pathogen-free cats immunized by two injections of each type of vaccine to neutralize FCV field isolates. Each vaccine immune serum neutralized relatively well strains F4, F9, and 255, which were FCV laboratory strains. As to 36 strains of field isolates, however, vaccines A, B, C, and D immune sera did not neutralize 18-20 of the strains (50.0%-55.6%), 19-22 of the strains (52.8%-61.1%), 22-25 of the strains (61.1%-69.4%), and 8-16 of the strains (22.2%-44.4%), respectively. These results indicate that there is much difference in neutralizing antigenicity between the existing vaccine strains and the FCV strains that are prevalent in Japan, suggesting the need for improvement of FCV vaccines.

Mapping of the feline calicivirus proteinase responsible for autocatalytic processing of the nonstructural polyprotein and identification of a stable proteinase-polymerase precursor protein. (2/88)Expression of the region of the feline calicivirus (FCV) ORF1 encoded by nucleotides 3233 to 4054 in an in vitro rabbit reticulocyte system resulted in synthesis of an active proteinase that specifically processes the viral nonstructural polyprotein. Site-directed mutagenesis of the cysteine (Cys1193) residue in the putative active site of the proteinase abolished autocatalytic cleavage as well as cleavage of the viral capsid precursor, suggesting that this "3C-like" proteinase plays an important role in proteolytic processing during viral replication. Expression of the region encoding the C-terminal portion of the FCV ORF1 (amino acids 942 to 1761) in bacteria allowed direct N-terminal sequence analysis of the virus-specific polypeptides produced in this system. The results of these analyses indicate that the proteinase cleaves at amino acid residues E960-A961, E1071-S1072, E1345-T1346, and E1419-G1420; however, the cleavage efficiency is varied. The E1071-S1072 cleavage site defined the N terminus of a 692-amino-acid protein that contains sequences with similarity to the picornavirus 3C proteinase and 3D polymerase domains. Immunoprecipitation of radiolabeled proteins from FCV-infected feline kidney cells with serum raised against the FCV ORF1 C-terminal region showed that this "3CD-like" proteinase-polymerase precursor protein is apparently stable and accumulates in cells during infection.

The capsid gene of feline calicivirus contains linear B-cell epitopes in both variable and conserved regions. (3/88)In order to map linear B-cell (LBC) epitopes in the major capsid protein of feline calicivirus (FCV), an expression library containing random, short (100- to 200-bp) fragments of the FCV F9 capsid gene was constructed. Analysis of this library showed it to be representative of the region of the capsid gene that encodes the mature capsid protein. The library was screened by using polyclonal antisera from a cat that had been challenged experimentally with F9 to identify immunoreactive clones containing LBC epitopes. Twenty-six clones that reacted positively to feline antisera in immunoblots were identified. FCV-derived sequence from these clones mapped to a region of the capsid that spanned 126 amino acids and included variable regions C and E. An overlapping set of biotinylated peptides corresponding to this region was used to further map LBC epitopes by using F9 antisera. Four principal regions of reactivity were identified. Two fell within the hypervariable region at the 5' end of region E (amino acids [aa] 445 to 451 [antigenic site (ags) 2] and aa 451 to 457 [ags 3]). However, the other two were in conserved regions (aa 415 to 421 [ags 1; region D] and aa 475 to 479 [ags 4; central region E]). The reactivity of the peptide set with antisera from 11 other cats infected with a range of FCV isolates was also determined. Ten of 11 antisera reacted to conserved ags 4, suggesting that this region may be useful for future recombinant vaccine design. (+info)
Analysis of the N-terminal polypeptide of the capsid precursor protein and the ORF3 product of feline calicivirus. (4/88)The N-terminal unique polypeptide region of the capsid precursor protein of feline calicivirus (FCV) and the protein encoded by ORF3 of FCV were expressed as fusion proteins with glutathione S-transferase to analyze the expressed products in FCV-infected cells. Immunoblot analysis using a serum from a cat experimentally infected with FCV indicated relatively high immunogenicity of the N-terminal polypeptide in FCV-infected cats, as compared with the ORF3 protein. Specific antisera were prepared by immunization to mice with the fused proteins and used in immunoblot analysis. A 14 kD product corresponding to the N-terminal polypeptide and a 10 kD polypeptide of the ORF3 product were identified in the FCV-infected cells but not detected in the purified particles. No neutralization activity against FCV was detected in these antisera. The proteins identified as polypeptides of 14 kD and 10 kD in this study may have functions as non-structural proteins. (+info)
Recovery and altered neutralization specificities of chimeric viruses containing capsid protein domain exchanges from antigenically distinct strains of feline calicivirus. (5/88)Feline calicivirus (FCV) strains can show significant antigenic variation when tested for cross-reactivity with antisera produced against other FCV strains. Previous work has demonstrated the presence of hypervariable amino acid sequences in the capsid protein of FCV (designated regions C and E) that were postulated to constitute the major antigenic determinants of the virus. To examine the involvement of hypervariable sequences in determining the antigenic phenotype, the nucleotide sequences encoding the E regions from three antigenically distinct parental FCV strains (CFI, KCD, and NADC) were exchanged for the equivalent sequences in an FCV Urbana strain infectious cDNA clone. Two of the three constructs were recovered as viable, chimeric viruses. In six additional constructs, of which three were recovered as viable virus, the E region from the parental viruses was divided into left (N-terminal) and right (C-terminal) halves and engineered into the infectious clone. A final viable construct contained the C, D, and E regions of the NADC parental strain. Recovered chimeric viruses showed considerable antigenic variation from the parental viruses when tested against parental hyperimmune serum. No domain exchange was able to confer complete recognition by parental antiserum with the exception of the KCD E region exchange, which was neutralized at a near-homologous titer with KCD antiserum. These data demonstrate that it is possible to recover engineered chimeric FCV strains that possess altered antigenic characteristics. Furthermore, the E hypervariable region of the capsid protein appears to play a major role in the formation of the antigenic structure of the virion where conformational epitopes may be more important than linear in viral neutralization.

Comparison of prevalence of feline herpesvirus type 1, calicivirus and parvovirus infections in domestic and leopard cats in Vietnam. (6/88)A serosurvey of feline herpesvirus type 1 (FHV-1), feline calicivirus (FCV), and feline parvovirus (FPV) in cats from Ho Chi Minh City area in southern Vietnam was conducted in December 1998, and we compared the results with our previous results in northern Vietnam (Hanoi area). The positive rate of FHV and FCV in domestic cats were 44% and 74%, respectively. They were rather higher than those in Hanoi area, while the seropositivity of FPV (44%) was similar to that in Hanoi area. In leopard cats, the positive rate of FPV was high (3/4) and it indicated that FPV was prevailing in leopard cats in Vietnam. (+info)
Identification and genomic mapping of the ORF3 and VPg proteins in feline calicivirus virions. (7/88)Two minor proteins with molecular masses of 8.5 and 15.5 kDa were identified in feline calicivirus (FCV) virions. Direct sequence analysis showed that the N-terminal sequence of the 8.5-kDa protein was identical to that of the predicted protein encoded by open reading frame 3 (ORF3) of the FCV genome. The N-terminal sequence of the 15.5-kDa protein corresponded to amino acids 961-980 of the FCV ORF1 polyprotein and mapped to the genomic location of the calicivirus VPg. Antisera raised against recombinant ORF3 protein or the N-terminal 20 amino acids of the putative VPg reacted with the corresponding proteins present in both a Western blot analysis of purified FCV virions and an immunofluorescence assay of FCV-infected cells. A comparative analysis of radioactivity incorporated into virion proteins during in vivo labeling experiments indicated that the ORF3 protein is likely present in one or two copies per virion. The mobility of the ORF3 protein present in virions was similar to that of the ORF3 protein found in FCV-infected cells or expressed in bacteria. Direct N- and C-terminal sequence analysis of the purified ORF3 protein obtained by expression in bacteria demonstrated the presence of intact, uncleaved termini, suggesting that the observed difference between the calculated and the apparent masses in SDS-PAGE was not due to proteolytic processing of the protein.

Proteinase-polymerase precursor as the active form of feline calicivirus RNA-dependent RNA polymerase. (8/88)The objective of this study was to identify the active form of the feline calicivirus (FCV) RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRP). Multiple active forms of the FCV RdRP were identified. The most active enzyme was the full-length proteinase-polymerase (Pro-Pol) precursor protein, corresponding to amino acids 1072 to 1763 of the FCV polyprotein encoded by open reading frame 1 of the genome. Deletion of 163 amino acids from the amino terminus of Pro-Pol (the Val-1235 amino terminus) caused a threefold reduction in polymerase activity. Deletion of an additional one (the Thr-1236 amino terminus) or two (the Ala-1237 amino terminus) amino acids produced derivatives that were 7- and 175-fold, respectively, less active than Pro-Pol. FCV proteinase-dependent processing of Pro-Pol in the interdomain region preceding Val-1235 was not observed in the presence of a catalytically active proteinase; however, processing within the polymerase domain was observed. Inactivation of proteinase activity by changing the catalytic cysteine-1193 to glycine permitted the production and purification of intact Pro-Pol. Biochemical analysis of Pro-Pol showed that this enzyme has properties expected of a replicative polymerase, suggesting that Pro-Pol is an active form of the FCV RdRP. (+info)

The two viruses commonly associated with cat flu or snuffles are the Feline Herpesvirus and the Feline Calicivirus. Both cause upper respiratory symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, conjunctivitis and discharge from the nose and eyes. The Herpesvirus tends to cause more severe symptoms. Ulcers on the tongue and chronic inflammation of the gums may also be seen with Calicivirus infection. Cats become infected by close contact with infected cats. Cats are at greatest risk of contracting snuffles at a boarding/breeding cattery or animal shelter. Recovered cats may continue to shed the virus without showing symptoms potentially infecting many animals.. ...

While it is difficult to induce long-time period immunity to bacterial infections, vaccines targeted toward viruses are normally more efficient at conferring long-time period immunity in the recipient. If the cat is spayed or neutered, chances are he or she was vaccinated as a kitten.. Dont vaccinate adult cats for FeLV - even if they have entry to the outdoors - since natural immunity to this disease is very sturdy by the point the cat is ~1 yr of age. We definitely should stop vaccinating with FVRCP every year but taking it one step additional, I dont observe the AAFP tips which counsel giving the FVRCP each 3 years because the risks outweigh the benefits ...

Novel Calicivirus Identified in Rabbits, Michigan, USA - Volume 15, Number 12-December 2009 - Emerging Infectious Disease...
We report a disease outbreak in a Michigan rabbitry of a rabbit calicivirus distinct from the foreign animal disease agent, rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV). The novel virus has been designated Michigan rabbit calicivirus (MRCV). Caliciviruses of the Lagovirus genus other than RHDV have not been described in US rabbit populations. The case-fatality rate was 32.5% (65/200). Clinical signs included hemorrhage and sudden death, with hepatic necrosis. Analysis of viral RNA sequence from >95% of the viral genome showed an average similarity of 79% with RHDV. Similarity of the predicted MRCV capsid amino acid sequence ranged from 89.8% to 91.3%, much lower than the 98% amino acid similarity between RHDV strains. Experimentally infected rabbits lacked clinical disease, but MRCV was detected in tissues by PCR. We propose that MRCV primarily causes subclinical infection but may induce overt RHD-like disease under certain field conditions.
Ned F. Kuehn, DVM, Diplomate, ACVIM. Feline respiratory disease complex includes those illnesses typified by rhinitis, conjunctivitis, lacrimation, salivation, and oral ulcerations. The principal diseases, Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis (FVR) and Feline Calicivirus (FCV) infections, affect exotic as well as ~domestic species. Feline Pneurnonitis (Chlamydia psittaci) and Mycoplasmal infections ,appear to be of lesser importance. Feline infectious peritonitis and pleuritis typically causes a more generalized condition but may cause signs of mild upper respiratory tract infection. I FVR and calliciviruses are host-specific and pose no known human risk. Human conjunctivitis caused by the feline chlamydial agent has been reported.. Etiology: Probably 40-45% of feline upper respiratory infections are caused by FVR s , which is a herpesvirus; incidence of FCV is similar. Dual infections with these viruses are common. Other organisms such as Chlamydia psittaci, Mycoplasma spp, and reoviruses are believed ...
The Iberian lynx (Lynx pardinus) is the most endangered felid species in the world. Lynx populations have decreased dramatically in size and distribution in the last four decades, thus becoming increasingly vulnerable to catastrophic events such as epizooties. From 1989 to 2000, serum samples were obtained from 48 free-ranging lynx captured in the Doñana National Park (DNP, n = 31) and mountains of Sierra Morena (SM, n = 17) in southern Spain. Samples were tested for antibodies against Toxoplasma gondii, feline herpesvirus 1 (FHV-1), feline calicivirus (FCV), feline/canine parvovirus (FPV/CPV), feline coronavirus, feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), feline leukaemia virus and canine distemper virus (CDV) and for FeLV p27 antigen, to document baseline exposure levels. Antibodies against T. gondii were detected in 44% of lynx, with a significantly greater prevalence in DNP (61%) than in SM (12%). In DNP, prevalence was significantly higher in adult (81%) than in juvenile and sub-adult (41%) ...
MacOdrum Library - Carleton's Institutional Repository: Ultrasensitive norovirus detection using DNA aptasensor technology
DNA aptamers were developed against murine norovirus (MNV) using SELEX (Systematic Evolution of Ligands by EXponential enrichment). Nine rounds of SELEX led to the discovery of AG3, a promising aptamer with very high affinity for MNV as well as for lab-synthesized capsids of a common human norovirus (HuNoV) outbreak strain (GII.3). Using fluorescence anisotropy, AG3 was found to bind with MNV with affinity in the low picomolar range. The aptamer could cross-react with HuNoV though it was selected against MNV. As compared to a non-specific DNA control sequence, the norovirus-binding affinity of AG3 was about a million-fold higher. In further tests, the aptamer also showed nearly a million-fold higher affinity for the noroviruses than for the feline calicivirus (FCV), a virus similar in size and structure to noroviruses. AG3 was incorporated into a simple electrochemical sensor using a gold nanoparticle-modified screen-printed carbon electrode (GNPs-SPCE). The aptasensor could detect MNV with a ...

Genetic characterization of a reptilian calicivirus (Cro1) - Sandoval-Jaime, Carlos, Parra,, Smith,, Green,, Sosnovtsev, -...
Genetic characterization of a reptilian calicivirus (Cro1) : Vesiviruses in the family Caliciviridae infect a broad range of animal hosts including mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles. The vesivirus Cro1 strains were isolated from diseased snakes in the San Diego zoo in 1978 and reported as the first caliciviruses found in reptiles. The goal of this study was to characterize the Cro1 strain 780032I that was isolated in cell culture from a rock

They additionally have been liberally infecting the species with the Rabbit Calicivirus Disease (RCD) from as far back as 1991 but since the animals have been able to develop immunities to it that has forced them into developing ever new strains of the killer. "What thats (the rabbit eradication biological pipeline plan) trying to do is recognize that we have to put out new strains of the rabbit calicivirus at key points, to keep numbers low, rather than just waiting for numbers to bounce back, going into crisis mode and then trying to do what we can," Andreas Glanzig of the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre (IACRC) at the University of Canberra told the ABC on November 25, 2015. (See "Rabbit Control Plan Plays the Long Game to Contain Devastating Pest, Protect Threatened Species.") "What the twenty-year plan is all about is making sure weve got new strains of calicivirus coming out every five to eight years, so that when the effectiveness of one strain starts to decrease weve got ...
The picornavirus genome consists of a single molecule of linear, postitive(+)-sense, single-strand RNA. It is non-segmented. The complete genome is 7000-8500 nucleotides long. At the 5-terminus of the genome has a long untranslated region 600-1200 bases in length, which is important in translation, virulence, and possibly encapsidation. There is a shorter untranslated region (50-100 bases in length) on the 3-terminus, which is important in (-)strand-synthesis. The 5-terminus untranslated region also has a "clover leaf" secondary structure known as the Internal Ribosome Entry Site (IRES), which distinguishes picornaviruses from other RNA viruses; this structure is important in translation and replication. The 5-terminus is modified by a covalently-attached VPg protein (which takes the place of a cap), while the 3-terminus is modified by polyadenylation. (sources: ICTVdB, Bedard, Flynn) ...

Caliciviridae is a family of viruses, members of Class IV of the Baltimore scheme. They are positive-sense, single stranded RNA which is non-segmented. There are currently seven species in this family, divided among 5 genera. Diseases associated with this family include: feline calicivirus: respiratory disease; rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus: often-fatal hemorrhages; norwalk group of viruses: gastroenteritis. Caliciviruses naturally infect vertebrates, and have been found in a number of organisms such as humans, cattle, pigs, cats, chickens, reptiles, dolphins and amphibians. The caliciviruses have a simple construction and are not enveloped. The capsid appears hexagonal/spherical and has icosahedral symmetry (T=1 or T=3) with a diameter of 35-39 nm. Caliciviruses are not very well studied because until recently they could not be grown in culture, and there is no suitable animal model. However, the recent application of modern genomic technologies has led to an increased understanding of the ...
Frontiers | Virucidal Activity of Fogged Chlorine Dioxide- and Hydrogen Peroxide-Based Disinfectants against Human Norovirus...
Human norovirus (NoV) is the leading cause of foodborne illnesses in the United States. Norovirus is shed in high numbers in the feces and vomitous of infected individuals. Contact surfaces contaminated with bodily fluids harboring infectious virus particles serve as vehicles for pathogen transmission. Environmental stability of NoV and its resistance to many conventional disinfectants necessitate effective inactivation strategies to control the spread of virus. We investigated the efficacy of two commercial disinfectants, hydrogen peroxide (7.5%) and a chlorine dioxide (0.2%)-surfactant-based product using a fogging delivery system against human NoV GI.6 and GII.4 Sydney strains as well as the cultivable surrogate, feline calicivirus (FCV) dried on stainless steel coupons. Log10 reductions in human NoV and FCV were calculated utilizing RNase RT-qPCR and infectivity (plaque) assay, respectively.

Figure 1 - Calicivirus Emergence from Ocean Reservoirs: Zoonotic and Interspecies Movements - Volume 4, Number 1-March 1998 -...
Caliciviral infections in humans, among the most common causes of viral-induced vomiting and diarrhea, are caused by the Norwalk group of small round structured viruses, the Sapporo caliciviruses, and the hepatitis E agent. Human caliciviruses have been resistant to in vitro cultivation, and direct study of their origins and reservoirs outside infected humans or water and foods (such as shellfish contaminated with human sewage) has been difficult. Modes of transmission, other than direct fecal-oral routes, are not well understood. In contrast, animal viruses found in ocean reservoirs, which make up a second calicivirus group, can be cultivated in vitro. These viruses can emerge and infect terrestrial hosts, including humans. This article reviews the history of animal caliciviruses, their eventual recognition as zoonotic agents, and their potential usefulness as a predictive model for noncultivatable human and other animal caliciviruses (e.g., those seen in association with rabbit hemorrhagic disease).

Solo-Jec Feline 3 vaccine aids in the prevention of diseases caused by Feline Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus and Panleukopenia viruses in kittens and cats.
Physiological function, and specifically immunological function, in ectothermic vertebrates is often constrained by thermal environments that may negatively affect performance. North American tortoises (genus Gopherus) have been the source of numerous studies investigating baseline immunological parameters (specifically related to upper respiratory tract disease, URTD), yet little is known regarding the nature of acute immune responses and how immune responses are constrained by thermal environments in this taxon of high conservation concern. Herein, we measured immune responses in gopher tortoises (Gopherus polyphemus) to simulated acute bacterial infection (lipopolysaccharide, LPS). We performed assays in G. polyphemus that had been acclimated to two different seasonal (and thus thermal) acclimation states of winter and summer to test the hypothesis that seasonal context determines the scope of an immunological response. We measured body temperature, bactericidal ability (BA), plasma iron, ...

Feline calicivirus (FCV)-a member of the Vesivirus-represents an important pathogen of cats. Sapovirus, Norovirus, and Vesivirus have been detected in pigs, making this animal species of particular interest in the study of calicivirus pathogenesis and host range. The first mouse norovirus, murine norovirus 1 (MNV-1), was discovered in 2003. Since then, numerous murine norovirus strains have been identified and they were assigned a new genogroup in the genus Norovirus. Rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus is a pathogen of rabbits that causes major problems throughout the world where rabbits are reared for food and clothing, make a significant contribution to ecosystem ecology, and where they support valued wildlife as a food source.. ...

Australias biocontrol programs using Myxoma virus in 1950 and the Rabbit Calicivirus in 1995 have been extremely successful in drastically reducing pest rabbit numbers in Australia. However, there is no status quo in rabbit biocontrol: the virus and rabbits constantly co-evolve, and changes in virus virulence and innate resistance in the host leads to rabbit numbers increasing yet again. We are continuing research to find new strategies that will help maintain benefits of biocontrol in the future.
Dear Dr. Pitcairn,. I e-mailed you a year ago, but lost my password, so I dont know if you had a chance to answer ~~~ but my questions are different now!. I am desperately trying to save Sagacity, my 11-year old neutered male "boss" cat. He is calm and mellow, except when he is protecting my other 34 cats, and I love him dearly. He was diagnosed with calicivirus about 4 1/2 years ago, and I have been giving him 1/4 tsp. of coconut oil every day; I also gave him Viralys (with l-Lysine and dehydrated fish) powder to boost his immune system and balance the Omega 6 fatty acids in his coconut doses; then I covered them with a turkey "smoothie." I mix one jar of Gerbers turkey baby food with 2 jars of distilled water, shake it, and pour it into the dishes of Sagacity and several other cats. The last time I ran out of Viralys, Sagacity had developed a swelling on the left side of his mouth, so I took him with me to the vet. I thought it was an abcess on one of his remaining teeth, but the vet said ...

The recent increase in the creation of trans-boundary protected areas and wildlife corridors between them lend importance to information on pathogen prevalence and transmission among wildlife species that will become connected. One such initiative is the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA/TFCA) of which Botswanas Okavango Delta constitute a major contribution in terms of wildlife and ecosystems. Between 2008 and 2011, we collected serum samples from 14 lions (Panthera leo), four leopards (P. pardus), 19 spotted hyenas (Crocuta crocuta), and six cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus) in the Okavango. Samples were tested for antibodies against: canine distemper virus (CDV), feline panleukopenia virus, enteric coronavirus, feline calicivirus, feline herpesvirus (FHV-1), and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). Evidence of exposure to all of these pathogens was found to varying degrees in at least one of the species sampled. High seroprevalence (, 90%) was only found for FHV-1 and FIV in ...

Formaldehyde (FA) fixation of infectious samples is a well-established protocol in diagnostic electron microscopy of viruses. However, published experimental data that demonstrate virus inactivation by these fixation procedures are lacking. Usually, fixation is performed immediately before the sample preparation for microscopy. The fixation procedure should transform viruses in a non-infectious but nonetheless structurally intact form in order to allow a proper diagnosis based on morphology. FA provides an essential advantage in comparison to other disinfectants, because it preserves the ultrastructure of biological material without interfering significantly with the preparation (i.e., the negative staining) and the detection of viruses. To examine the efficiency of FA inactivation, we used Vaccinia virus, Human adenovirus and Murine norovirus as models and treated them with FA under various conditions. Critical parameters for the inactivation efficiency were the temperature, the duration of the FA

almost all fading kittens exhibit similar symptoms. Profound lethargy, low body temperature, pale gums, low respiratory rate, and failure to root and nurse or eat are nearly universal signs of the syndrome. However, these signs can be caused by a large number of problems. ( Inadequate mothering, Trauma and hypothermia are two causes of fading kitten syndrome that truly come on suddenly. Trauma occurs most frequently when a kitten falls from height or is crushed. Hypothermia occurs when kittens are separated from one another and the mother in a chilly environment. Note that hypothermia can be either a cause or a result of a fading kitten crisis. Almost all fading kittens in crisis will exhibit hypothermia. Infectious organisms are frequent culprits in fading kitten syndrome. Kittens are at risk of sepsis from bacterial infections. Viral infections with organisms such as feline herpesvirus, calicivirus, panleukopenia, FIV/feline AIDS, and feline leukemia virus may trigger the syndrome. Parasitic ...
Cough is the most common symptom for which patients present for their primary care physicians, and acute bronchitis is the most common diagnosis in these patients. Nevertheless, studies demonstrate that most patients with acute bronchitis are treated with ineffective or incorrect treatments. Although some doctors cite patient expectations and time constraints for using these therapies, recent warnings from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about the risks of specific commonly employed agents underscore the value of using only evidence-based, effective therapies for bronchitis. A survey revealed that 55 percent of patients believed that antibiotics were effective for treating viral upper respiratory tract diseases, and that almost 25 percent of patients had self-treated an upper respiratory tract illness in the previous year with antibiotics left over from earlier diseases. Studies have shown that the duration of office visits for acute respiratory infection is unchanged or only one ...
There are times when tortoises need a drink of water to flush out toxic accumulations in the bladder. When there is rain during the time of year that tortoises are active, March through September, wild tortoises, look for puddles. Tortoises may drink for 15 minutes or until the puddle is gone. This may be the only drink a wild tortoise gets during a year. The water is stored in the bladder and passes through the bladder wall into the tortoises system when needed. For this reason the tortoise holds that water until there is fresh water to drink. Pet tortoises may drink at any time but particularly when it rains, upon emerging from brumation (hibernation) and just prior to brumation. See that clean, shaded, shallow water is always available. See Provide Water on page 15 of the Adoption and Care booklet. Is it true that the Clark County euthanizes unwanted tortoises? NO.

Bet your cat knows how to tell you when shes hungry. Most cats have very dramatic and prolonged meows that let their humans know when its time for dinner-and translation assistance is definitely not needed! Those demanding meows tell us exactly what our cats are thinking.. And it turns out that is precisely their point.. Here is the funny thing about those meows…theyre only meant for us. If you have more than one cat, pay attention to the way they interact. Communication is fairly complicated in the feline family, and your cats will talk to one another by using growls, trills, hisses, prrrrps, chirps and even yowls. But what you wont hear is one meowing to another.. Cats also communicate through scent-they head butt, rub against each other, and mark their homes with invisible scent: a feline "X marks the spot" so all other cats will know who lives there. All these unique signposts and signals make up feline language and are how cats talk with one another.. But sometime during those ...

Isolation of Feline Herpesvirus - 1 From the Ciliary Ganglia of Experimentally Infected Cats | IOVS | ARVO Journals
Introduction: : In man, latent herpes simplex virus-1 has been detected in ciliary ganglia. Infection of bulbar conjunctiva and cornea with feline herpesvirus-1 (FHV-1) would allow FHV-1 access to the ciliary ganglia. Purpose: : Determine if active FHV-1 can be isolated from the ciliary ganglia of experimentally infected cats. Methods: : Twelve, juvenile, specific pathogen free (SPF) cats were inoculated with 1x105 TCID50 of the C27 strain of FHV-1 via the ocular and nasal routes. Three, juvenile, SPF cats served as controls. Four infected and 1 control cat were euthanized on day 6 (all animals demonstrating clinical signs), 10 (peak of ocular and respiratory signs), and 30 (virus latent with resolution of clinical signs). The right ciliary ganglia were harvested, placed in 800µl Bovarnicks solution, and homogenized. Cultures were performed in duplicate. A 100µl aliquot of filtered tissue extract was inoculated onto monolayers of Crandall Reese feline kidney cells. The cultures were examined ...

The objective of this study was to characterize the inactivation effects of a pilot-scale continuous-flow intense pulsed light (IPL) system on microorganisms in untreated groundwater used in the food industry. The inactivation effects of laboratory- and pilot-scale IPL systems on murine norovirus (MNV), a human norovirus surrogate, were also investigated. Flow rates of 40, 32, 20 and 12 l/min were tested (corresponding to 89,113, 179, and 290 s of treatment time in a chamber, respectively). A 290-s pilot-scale IPL treatment at an energy dose of 14.02 J/cm(2) resulted in a 4.79-log reduction of Escherichia coli C600 in water with an initial count of 10(5)-10(6) CFU/ml, while a 270-s treatment at an energy dose of 13.05 J/cm(2) resulted in a 2.91-log inactivation of aerobic and facultative anaerobic heterotrophs in untreated groundwater with the initial count of 4.5 x 10(4) CFU/ml. An 89-s treatment at a dose of 4.30 J/cm(2) resulted in a 3.35-log inactivation of MNV in water with the initial ...

Seriously? Yes! Evidence is mounting that the common FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and paneleukopenia) vaccine may cause long-term damage to cats kidneys that increases with every booster. Heres the report from Colorado State University:. The Center for Companion Animal Studies at Colorado State University has shown that cats vaccinated with FVRCP vaccines grown on Crandell-Rees Feline Kidney (CRFK) cell lines can develop antibodies to renal proteins, and that cats hypersensitized to CRFK cell lysates can develop interstitial nephritis…Cats administered FVRCP vaccines parenterally (by injection) have higher levels of circulating antibodies to these antigens than do cats who were administered a FVRCP vaccine for intranasal administration.. Similar antibodies have been implicated in the development of renal disease in humans, and there is every reason to suspect that they do the same in cats. Chronic chronic kidney disease (CKD) in cats is known to be caused by chronic ...

- The virulent and non-virulent forms of calicivirus can both begin with the same symptoms -- including the aforementioned oral ulceration, limping and fever. (wboc.com)
- More commonly, cats experience this severity of symptoms due to common FCV combined with panleukopenia or another respiratory issue. (wboc.com)
- It is therefore important that you visit your vet as soon as possible if you suspect your cat is suffering with cat flu like symptoms. (our-happy-cat.com)
- My aim is to make you aware of the calicivirus and its symptoms, but most of all to encourage you to speak to your vet about protecting your pet with the right cat vaccines. (our-happy-cat.com)
- Background: Cats with feline calicivirus (FCV)-related symptoms are commonly presented to veterinary practitioners. (uzh.ch)
- In persistently infected cats, the gene for the major structural protein of the viral capsid (the outer protein coat of a mature virus) has been shown to evolve through immune-mediated positive selection, which allows the virus to escape detection by the immune system. (wikipedia.org)
- Burroughs JN, Brown F (1978) Presence of a covalently linked protein on calicivirus RNA. (springer.com)
- The N-terminal sequence of the 15.5-kDa protein corresponded to amino acids 961-980 of the FCV ORF1 polyprotein and mapped to the genomic location of the calicivirus VPg. (nih.gov)
- The caliciviruses have certain features in common with picornaviruses (relatedness in nonstructural protein motifs and similarities in infected-cell morphology) and alphaviruses (the presence of a subgenomic RNA for translation of the structural proteins) ( 7 , 29 , 30 ). (asm.org)
- The replication of the calicivirus RNA genome occurs via a double-stranded RNA intermediate that is then used as a template for the production of new positive sense viral RNA, which is covalently linked to the virus-encoded protein VPg. (peerj.com)
- This work provides the first direct experimental characterization of the linkage of infectious calicivirus viral RNA to the VPg protein and highlights that post-translational modifications of VPg may also occur during the viral life cycle. (peerj.com)
- Vertebrate RNA viruses that encode a VPg protein include picornaviruses, astroviruses and caliciviruses ( Goodfellow, 2011 ). (peerj.com)
- Diagnosis of FCV is difficult without specific tests, because the signs are similar to other feline respiratory diseases, especially feline viral rhinotracheitis. (wikipedia.org)
- If feline calicivirus is undetected, the vet will perform fluroscein stain testing to diagnose corneal ulcers associated with feline rhinotracheitis. (vetinfo.com)
- Calicivirus and feline rhinotracheitis virus account for 85 to 90 percent of all URIs in cats. (healthcommunities.com)
- It was also present in some of the healthy cats, stressing the need to be aware of asymptomatic carriers. (aaha.org)
- Fifteen cats had conjunctivitis, three had oral ulceration, eight had respiratory signs (cough, sneeze and nasal discharge) and nine were asymptomatic. (scielo.br)
- Even asymptomatic cats could harbor the virus and then pass it on to others. (wboc.com)
- Upper respiratory infections are more likely to occur under certain circumstances: crowded living conditions (e.g., shelters, catteries), unsanitary conditions (e.g., when poor disinfection or poor hygiene are allowed), or during times of exposure to affected cats where bodily fluids are being exchanged by contagious discharge from the eyes or nose (sneezing). (pethealthnetwork.com)
- The virus is very contagious and so is more prevalent where cats are kept in larger quantities, so catteries and animal shelters have to be very careful and keep their eyes peeled for the first signs of the illness. (our-happy-cat.com)
- The aim of this study was to perform the molecular characterization of conserved and variable regions of feline calicivirus capsid genome in order to investigate the molecular diversity of variants in Brazilian cat population. (scielo.br)

- Luckily there is a way to prevent your cat from contracting this virus and passing it along to other felines. (petcarerx.com)
- The virus spreads easily in multi-cat environments such as boarding facilities, shelters, breeding catteries, and multi-cat homes. (petcarerx.com)
- That's right -- humans can touch an affected cat and then spread the virus to other cats. (petcarerx.com)
- Most cats carry and shed the virus for 2-3 weeks. (petcarerx.com)
- Some cats will remain carriers for several months while others will carry the virus for life. (petcarerx.com)
- Feline calicivirus (FCV) is a RNA virus that affects both domestic and exotic cats. (aaha.org)
- This is because the calicivirus is an unstable virus, which means it mutates every time it is passed from one cat to the next. (wboc.com)
