Detection of FIP-relevant mutations in coronaviruses - PCR now available
Concerning FIP diagnostics, a new and more sensitive PCR is now available for the investigation of aspirates (ascites, thoracic effusion, cerebrospinal fluid), tissue and EDTA blood. In addition to the detection of coronavirus, this new PCR offers - in a further step - the possibility to determine mutations based on the publication of Chang et al., 2012 (PMID: 22709821). In this study, two mutations in the spike protein of feline coronaviruses were found, which correlate with FIP disease.
