Your question caused me look in most of my small animal medical texts 
and brought me to the conclusions that despite graduating from Vet 
School in '91, I am now outdated.  However, the newer editions of 
Ettinger's Textbook of Veterinary Internal Medicine, and Greene's 
Clinical Microbiology should both have good updated information in 
them.  The newest edition of Jubb and Kennedy's Pathology of Domestic 
Animals has good material, but it is covered through all three volumes
under various anatomical headings.  Otherwise the following are some 
articles you may be interested in rounding up and taking a look at.

O'Connor TP, et.al. 1989, J Clinical Microbiol 27:474-479. Development
and evaluation of immunoassay for detection of antibodies to feline 
T-lymphotropic lentivirus (FIV)

Lin DS, et al. 1990, Vet Immunol Immunopathol 26:183-189. Suppression 
of lymphocyte blastogenesis to mitogens in cats infected with FIV.

Yamamoto JK, et.al. 1988. Am J. Vet Res 49:1246-1258. Pathogenesis of 
experimentally induced FIV infection in cats.

Shelton GH, et.al. 1990. J Acquir Immune Defic Syndr  3: 623-630. 
FIV and FELV infections and their relationship to lymphoid 
malignancies in cats.

If you have any other questions I'd be glad to help if I'm able.
But don't expect to much (=: I'm a pathologist not a virologist.
