SUMMARY

Biological effects of staphylococcal protein A (spa) immunotherapy were studied in 5 viremic and 6 nonviremic cats with induced FeLV infection and in 6 control cats. The spa therapy neither reversed FeLV viremia nor resulted in consistent improvement in humoral immune responses to FeLV antigens. However, spa immunotherapy induced a proliferative response in bone marrow granulocytic lineage, possibly resulting in expression of FeLV-free mature neutrophils in the blood. Seemingly, viral burden and chemiluminescent responses were reversed in viremic cats during spa immunotherapy.
