Hi Folks,

 I ran across this article updating Cornell's stance on this  
subject. According to cornell the FELV virus can still survive 5-7  
days in a dry environment.

Re: Cornell update on virus survival in a dry environment

2008-05-18 Thread Gloria Lane
Hmmm, this is what I get out of it.  What they seem to be saying is  
that there are 2 kind of viruses, enveloped viruses and non-enveloped  
viruses.
The enveloped ones break down more easily.  FELV is an enveloped  
virus, as are FIPV, FIV, and HIV.  They did some tests with other  
enveloped
viruses, and depending on the conditions, the virus lasted longer than  
was expected.


They did not, however, do tests on the FELV virus, and couldn't find  
any that had been done on FELV;  but they're assuming that it's  
possibly true
that this virus can last longer in the environment that they thought  
(or not).


This is an excerpt from that article - a paragraph about FELV is  
underlined and bigger:

---
...
For years it was assumed that the enveloped FIPV and the other feline  
coronaviruses were
quite labile and did not survive outside the cat any length of time,  
perhaps a matter of hours.
However, studies in our laboratory on the survivability of FIPV on  
contaminated objects
provided surprising results. Aliquots of an infectious viral  
preparation were dried onto Petri
dishes and allowed to remain at room temperature for up to seven  
weeks. At varying times
samples were assayed for infectious virus. There was some loss of  
infectivity during the drying
process, but then the amount of infectious virus remained relatively  
constant with only a gradual
decrease in viability. FIPV virus could be recovered up to seven weeks  
from these dried

samples.

Results of studies on other parvoviruses, herpesviruses, and  
coronaviruses of animals

were consistent with our findings. [Brown, AmJVetRes 42:1033-36, 1981]

I have attempted to find published controlled studies that address the  
survivability of
FeLV in the environment, but to date I have been unable to find a  
creditable report in the
literature. Absent such a study, what can we learn from other studies  
that can reasonably predict

what occurs with FeLV.

Van Bueren et al. [J. Clin. Microbiol. 32(2):571-574, 1994] studied  
the survival of human
immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the cause of human AIDS, in suspension  
and dried on surfaces.
They looked at survival of both cell-free and cell-associated virus  
either suspended in serum or
dried onto glass surfaces. Both cell-associated and cell-free HIV  
suspended in serum survived
for several weeks at room temperature. Cell-free HIV that was dried  
onto a glass surface
survived for at least seven days, while cell-associated HIV was  
inactivated faster than cell-free
virus, but still survived up to five days. The published results of  
several other studies on HIV are

consistent with the results obtained by Van Bueren et al.

FeLV, HIV, and FIV all belong to the same virus family, retroviruses.  
It is reasonable to
assume that the survivability of FeLV on a contaminated surface will  
be similar to that of HIV –
days to weeks rather that minutes to hours. There is no scientific  
evidence to show that the
simple process of drying of FeLV immediately renders it inactive or  
not infectious.
