Immunoperoxidase antibody (IPA) method as a titrating method of feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) virus (FIPV) was developed for titrating antibody to FIPV (IPA-titer). By this method the immune responses of the cats that had been infected with FIPV, were traced. The infected cats could be grouped into three types by their immune response to FIPV and clinical appearances. Type I cats lived for a long time, formed a major group among infected cats, had 160 to 1 x 10(4) IPA-titers, and showed healthy appearances without any changes both on autopsy and histopathologically. From among type I cats, type II cats appeared sporadically with rapid elevation of IPA titers to 3.2 x 10(5) and showing clinical signs of FIP, and died. Type III cats lived healthily for a long time with gradual elevation of IPA-titers to a plateau of about 1 x 10(5), then showed neuronal disorder of hind leg paralysis with the descending IPA-titers to 2 x 10(4), and died. Thus, typical FIP appeared as a hyper-immune disease. Other related problems are discussed.
