The simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) of the common chimpanzee is widely acknowledged as the direct ancestor of HIV-1. There is increasing historical evidence that during the late 1950s, kidneys were routinely excised from central African chimpanzees by scientists who were collaborating with the polio vaccine research of Dr Hilary Koprowski, and sent - inter alia - to vaccine-making laboratories in the USA and Africa, and to unspecified destinations in Belgium. While there is no direct…

TLDR
The relationship between historiography and the making of scientific facts and history is questioned, suggesting that historians have been too credulous of scientists' testimony.
Molecular epidemiology of HIV-1 in the United Kingdom
TLDR
The analyses presented in these pages emphasizes the advantage of combining state-of-the-art epidemiological studies to phylogenetic frameworks when investigating the dynamics of a viral epidemic as complex as HIV-1.
Oncogenic Viruses and Cancer Transmission
TLDR
Most kinds of viral tumors only appear after long incubation periods, indicating that the virus is a necessary but not sufficient agent of tumorigenesis, and the cancers may be regarded as occasional "side effects" of much more frequent virus infection and transmission.
Non è Vero, è Mal Trovato: Polio Vaccine is not the cause of HIV
TLDR
This article replies to recent publications, and refers to the body of accumulated information, about an oral polio vaccine tested in the early 1960s in the then Belgian Congo that was contaminated with chimpanzee SIV and was the source of HIV-1 Group M for humans.
Matrix and Backstage: Cellular Substrates for Viral Vaccines
TLDR
This review summarizes the diversity of cellular substrates for propagation of viral vaccines from primary tissue explants and embryonated chicken eggs to designed continuous cell lines of human and avian origin.

Supporters of dominant scientific theories sometimes attack competing, less favoured theories in ways that conflict with expectations of proper scientific behaviour, for example by using double
Virus en primates no humanos: Zoonosis, Antroponosis y Biodiversidad
TLDR
El estudio de las infecciones virales en primates no humanos reviste importancia tanto para the preservacion of the biodiversidad como para the prevencion of epidemias de gran impacto en salud humana.
The microbiological context of HIV resistance
TLDR
A large number of study groups in Winnipeg and Nairobi confirmed the findings of previous work on ultra-deep molecular characterization of vaginal microbiota, which led to conclusions that vaginal microbiota quantification and functional analysis should be considered as separate studies.

Genetic organization of a chimpanzee lentivirus related to HIV-1
TLDR
The molecular cloning and sequencing of an infectious proviral clone of SIVCPZ indicates that there is a larger pool of simian lentiviruses than previously suspected and revives debate as to the origins of HIV-1.
Isolation and partial characterization of an HIV-related virus occurring naturally in chimpanzees in Gabon.
TLDR
Nucleic acid hybridization experiments appear to indicate that the retrovirus isolated from wild-born chimpanzees, designated SIVcpz-GAB-1 (simian immunodeficiency virus from chimpanzee), is different from HIV-1 and HIV-2 and the other SIVs.
Preliminary Report on Mass Vaccination of Man with Live Attenuated Poliomyelitis Virus in the Belgian Congo and Ruanda-Urundi*
TLDR
The findings do, however, suggest that, so long as care is taken to introduce and observe the recommended measures of protection, the long-term somatic risks of radiation will be very small.
Origins of HIV
Origins of HIV
TLDR
This analysis establishes 1931 as the date of origin of the HIV-1 M-group viruses (the principal cause of the AIDS pandemic) and discusses three possible hypotheses of immunodeficiency virus transmission that are consistent with this date.
AIDS. Origins of HIV.
TLDR
This analysis establishes 1931 as the date of origin of the HIV-1 M-group viruses (the principal cause of the AIDS pandemic) and discusses three possible hypotheses of immunodeficiency virus transmission that are consistent with this date.
Unprecedented Degree of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV-1) Group M Genetic Diversity in the Democratic Republic of Congo Suggests that the HIV-1 Pandemic Originated in Central Africa
TLDR
The high number of HIV-1 subtypes cocirculating, the high intrasubtype diversity, and the high numbers of possible recombinant viruses as well as different unclassified strains are all in agreement with an old and mature epidemic in the DRC, suggesting that this region is the epicenter of HIV -1 group M.
