There is a genetic origin of resistance to FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis Resistance)
FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis) is often a fatal disease.
There is no treatment or vaccine against FIP.
It is caused by an infection by feline coronavirus (FCoV).
Kittens and purebred cats are the most affected (1% to 5% affected by FIP).
Cases of death due to FIP are generally observed in cats from 3 to 16 months. Deaths are much rarer in adult cats over 2 years old.
However, some cats are resistant to FIP and survive, although they are infected.
Recent research demonstrates that these FIP-resistant cats share the same genetic mutation within the IFNG gene.
This IFNG gene codes for interferon-γ. This interferon plays a crucial role in the regulation of cytokines within cellular immunity and allows the control of intracellular pathogens.
What is the FIPR DNA test ?
GENIMAL laboratory has developed the DNA test that detects the mutation described in these research work.
This test cannot ensure complete protection from FIP infection, but it can greatly reduce the probability of developing FIP.
This test does not determine if a cat is FIP infected. It does not determine also the severity of FIP infection. To detect if your cat is infected with FIP, you must order this test.
The test is performed using a 부칼 면봉.
- 부칼 면봉
- EDTA 관에 있는 혈액
- 건조 관에 혈액
