FCVR Documentation

Dataset related to Feline calicivirus infection among cats in Switzerland.

Description

The dataset is about the Feline calicivirus (FCV) infection among cats in Switzerland. FCV is a virus that occurs worldwide in domestic cats but also in exotic felids. FCV is a highly contagious virus that is the major cause of upper respiratory disease or cat flue that affects felids. This is a complex disease caused by different viral and bacterial pathogens, i.e., FCV, FHV-1, Mycoplasma felis, Chlamydia felis and Bordetella bronchiseptica. It can be aggravated by retrovirus infections such as FeLV and FIV. This composite dynamic makes it very interesting for a BN modeling approach. The data were collected between September 2012 and April 2013.
