Scope note: A species of LENTIVIRUS, subgenus feline lentiviruses (LENTIVIRUSES, FELINE) isolated from cats with a chronic wasting syndrome, presumed to be immune deficiency. There are 3 strains: Petaluma (FIP-P), Oma (FIP-O) and Puma lentivirus (PLV). There is no antigenic relationship between FIV and HIV, nor does FIV grow in human T-cells.
Annotation: infection: coord IM with LENTIVIRUS INFECTIONS (IM) or FELINE ACQUIRED IMMUNODEFICIENCY SYNDROME (IM) if so specified by author; DF: FIV
