Feline Calicivirus (FCV) has been recognised as major oral and respiratory pathogen of cats.

Abstract

Feline Calicivirus (FCV) has been recognised as major oral and respiratory pathogen of cats. The high correlation among the field viruses and FCV-F9 serotype has represented the immunological bases for the employ of FCV-F9 serotype as a vaccine for calicivirosis in cats. The aim of this paper was to evaluate, by in vitro neutralization assays, the antigenic correlation among the vaccine F9 and FCV field strains isolated in Sicily (Italy) from cats showing clinical forms referable to calicivirus infection. The results confirm the low correlation between FCV-F9 strain and calicivirus strains spread in the feline population.
