Comparison of simian immunodeficiency virus and human immunodeficiency virus encephalitides in the immature host.

Abstract

The simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) is closely related to the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in genomic organization and morphology. More important, SIV and HIV are both primate lentiviruses that cause transmissible immunodeficiency and encephalitis, with an apparently increased virulence in the immature host. The neuropathological features in… (More)
