This study adds important data about the successful treatment of FIP with PI; it shows that PI is beneficial in the management of this disease, and reports survival analysis of these cats. The MST was 2917 days (eight years) for those cats that survived to at least 365 days. A combination of resolving anemia and normalization of A:G ratios during the PI treatment appears to be a positive prognostic indicator for survival. This study demonstrates that PI is useful in the treatment of FIP.
