The aim of the present study was to examine whether immaturity of cardiorespiratory control corresponds to a less mature behavioural state pattern and/or to less efficient feeding behaviour. Fifty-four infants were observed and data polygraphically recorded for 6 hours; a feeding session was included. It was found that infants with immature cardiorespiratory control spent more time in REM-sleep, less time in the active awake state, and were more likely to be inefficient feeders. In addition, 100 infants were observed for risk signs of sudden infant death syndrome and their parents were asked to answer a questionnaire on the sleeping and feeding behaviour of their infants. The majority of the infants with immature cardiorespiratory control were described as bad feeders but good sleepers. We conclude that gathering information about sleeping and feeding behaviour is useful when screening for immaturity of cardiorespiratory control. [less ▲]

Research on self-agency emphasizes the importance of a comparing mechanism, which scans for a match between anticipated and actual outcomes, in the subjective experience of doing. This study explored the “feeling of doing” in individuals with checking symptoms by examining the mechanism involved in the experienced agency for outcomes that matched expectations. This mechanism was explored using a task in which the subliminal priming of potential action-effects (emulating outcome anticipation) generally enhances people’s feeling of causing these effects when they occur, due to the unconscious perception of a match between primed and observed outcomes. The main result revealed a negative relationship between checking and self-agency for observed outcomes that were primed prior to actions. This suggests that checking individuals fail to grasp the correspondence between actual outcomes of their actions and expected ones. We discuss the possible role of undermined self-agency in checking phenomena and its relationship with cognitive dysfunction. [less ▲]

Glycoprotein G (gG) orthologues have been described in several alphaherpesviruses. gG is expressed both as a membrane-anchored form on infected cells and as a secreted form. Recently, we reported that both forms of gG encoded by alphaherpesviruses infecting large herbivores and by Felid herpesvirus 1 (FeHV-1) bind with high affinity to a broad range of CXC, CC and C-chemokines. Based on the viral species, gG has been reported either as a structural or a non-structural protein. To date, the incorporation of FeHV-1 gG into virions has never been tested, nor the property of alphaherpesvirus structural gG to bind chemokines on the virion surface. In the present study, to address these questions, various FeHV-1 gG recombinant strains were produced using an original technique based on an infectious FeHV-1 BAC clone and restriction endonuclease mediated recombination. Using the recombinants produced, we were able to determine that FeHV-1 gG is a structural protein that acts as a chemokine-binding protein on the virion surface. In the light of these results, putative roles of gG in alphaherpesvirus infections are discussed, and an evolutionary scenario is proposed to explain the structural versus non-structural property of gG amongst alphaherpesviruses.

Feline herpesvirus (FHV-1; felid herpesvirus 1 (FeHV-1)) is an alphaherpesvirus of cats closely related to canine herpesvirus-1 and phocine herpesvirus-1. There is only one serotype of the virus and it is relatively homogenous genetically. FeHV-1 is an important cause of acute upper respiratory tract and ocular disease in cats. In addition, its role in more chronic ocular disease and skin lesions is increasingly being recognised. Epidemiologically, FeHV-1 behaves as a typical alphaherpesvirus whereby clinically recovered cats become latently infected carriers which undergo periodic episodes of virus reactivation, particularly after a stress. The primary site of latency is the trigeminal ganglion. Conventional inactivated and modified-live vaccines are available and protect reasonably well against disease but not infection, although viral shedding may be reduced. Genetically engineered vaccines have also been developed, both for FeHV-1 and as vector vaccines for other pathogens, but none is as yet marketed. [less ▲]

Feline herpesvirus 1 (FeHV-1) and feline calicivirus (FCV), associated with upper respiratory tract disease, are highly prevalent in cats worldwide. With the aim to investigate the importance of feline respiratory viruses in a heterogeneous population of cats, samples were taken in a rescue shelter in Liege, Belgium, between March 2005 and August 2006. Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) were performed to diagnose FCV and FeHV-1 infection in the sampled cats. The prevalence rate (33.1%) was higher for FCV than for FeHV-1 (20.1%) whereas prevalence rate of co-infection with both viruses was 10%. Gingivitis was more common in FCV infections (odds ratio (OR)=2.83) whereas respiratory signs were more often observed with FeHV-1 infections. The average age was significantly higher in FCV positive cats (38 months) than in FeHV-1 positive cats (29.9 months). The second and the fourth quarters of the year and the two first quarters were significantly more at risk than the others in the case of FeHV-1 and FCV infection, respectively. Age was found to be a confounding factor. High prevalence of both infections strengthens the importance of applying hygienic and preventive measures in rescue shelters where cats with an unknown status of vaccination are introduced.

Infectious respiratory diseases also called ‘cat flu’ are nowadays one of the most relevant areas of feline medicine. Epidemiologic surveys revealed that 80% of the cases are due to feline calicivirus and Felid herpesvirus 1 (FeHV-1). FeHV-1 is an alphaherpesvirus that has a worldwide distribution in cat population. It is responsible for feline viral rhinotracheitis. This disease can be acute, chronic or latent. It is characterized by fever and respiratory or ocular signs among which conjunctivitis and keratitis are the most common. Severe cases can cause complete blindness of the cat mostly following repetitive reactivations. Latent viral carriers are epidemiologically important because they are the main source of infection to susceptible cats. Nowadays no vaccine can prevent infection. At best, available vaccines help to reduce clinical signs but fail to prevent establishment of latency or reactivation. Consequently, feline viral rhinotracheitis still represents a major problem in domestic cats. This review focuses on the current knowledge about feline viral rhinotracheitis and its etiologic agent, FeHV-1. [less ▲]
