Residents of a British village said the disappearance of 18 cats is believed to be the work of a serial cat thief. Locals in Newton Flotman, England, said six cats went missing during the same week at the close of April and they suspect the culprit may be someone who is upset about the felines messing up a garden or chasing wild birds, The Daily Telegraph reported Wednesday. We suspect foul play. It used to be if you walked along Olive Avenue in the daytime you would see about five or six...

U.S. scientists say human immunodeficiency virus drug developers should focus on immune cells called macrophages instead of traditionally targeted T cells. In the largest study of its kind, researchers from the University of Florida and five other institutions said they discovered that in diseased cells, such as cancer cells, that are also infected with HIV, nearly all the virus was packed into macrophages, whose job is to eat invading disease agents. The researchers said they also found that...

MONTREAL, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- As genetically divergent strains of the HIV virus become increasingly prevalent in the United States, the ability of clinicians to effectively monitor progress of anti-viral drug therapies depends on the capacity of viral load assays to accurately quantitate, or measure, these variant HIV strains, according to research reported today at the 16th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI). A study by the Global HIV...

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Four children in two Amish families in Minnesota have been infected with polio after not being vaccinated against the disease, probably for religious reasons, state health officials said on Thursday. Genetic testing shows the polio involved likely originated overseas in an infant who had been vaccinated with a live polio virus, state epidemiologist Dr. Harry Hull said. That kind of vaccine has not been used in the United States for five years. He said a Minnesota...

GAINESVILLE, Fla. - A University of Florida researcher has discovered an unexpected link between the viruses that cause feline and human AIDS: Cats vaccinated with an experimental strain of the human AIDS virus appear to be at least as well-protected against the feline version of the disease as those immunized with the vaccine currently used by veterinarians. The surprise finding may mean cats with feline immunodeficiency virus, also known as FIV or feline AIDS, could eventually be treated...

A virus that typically infects insects could help with the development of gene therapy treatment for Hemophilia A, a condition in which even a bump on the knee can cause serious internal bleeding in people. Researchers at the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine improved a vector -- a vehicle that delivers gene therapy to cells -- in two ways to create a sustained, partial correction to bleeding problems in mice engineered to have Hemophilia A, which is also...

Feline viral rhinotracheitis (FVR), caused by feline herpesvirus 1, is an upper respiratory infection of cats. It can also be referred to as feline influenza or feline coryza. FVR causes one-half of respiratory disease in cats. Feline calicivirus is another of the most common diseases to cause respiratory infection in cats.

Feline leukemia virus (FeLV), a retrovirus that infects cats, is transmitted between infected cats through saliva and nasal secretions. If the cat's immune system does not take care of the disease then it can be lethal due to it being a cancer of blood cells called lymphocytes. Symptoms can vary from loss of appetite, to poor coat condition, infections of the skin, bladder and respiratory tract, oral disease, seizures, lymphadenopathy, skin lesions, fatigue, fever, weight loss,...
