The viruses that are associated with cancers include hepatitis B and C viruses (HBV and HCV), human papilloma viruses (HPV), human T-cell leukemia virus
(HTLV-1), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), human herpes virus 8 (HHV-8) which is also known as Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpes virus (KSHV), and Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCV).
All animals are susceptible to illness and disease, but a couple of devastating sicknesses only affect cats, such as feline leukemia virus
and feline immunodeficiency virus.
Feline leukemia virus
(FeLV) is a v retrovirus with global distribution.
Human T-cell leukemia virus
Type I induces adult T-cell leukemia: From clinical aspects to molecular mechanisms.
Regulation of the human T-cell leukemia virus
gene expression depends on the localization of regulatory proteins Tax, Rex and p30II in specific nuclear subdomains.
Comparison of the geographical distribution of feline immunodeficiency virus and feline leukemia virus
infections in the United States of America (2000-2011).
Some researchers speculate that infection with other viruses, such as feline leukemia virus
or feline immunodeficiency virus, may play a role in some cases of feline gingivitis, although this has not been proven.
3,4) Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia Virus
(FeLV) are important retroviruses that affect domestic cats and wild Felidae.
A closely related virus is bovine leukemia virus
The 2,100-pound longhorn was diagnosed with bovine leukemia virus
last week, and has been forced to retire.
Bovine Leukemia Virus
(BLV) was detected in blood sera and leukocyte samples of 5 of 50 (10%) dams and 5 of 11 (45.
