A variant of simian immunodeficiency virus (SIVSMM/PBj), isolated from a chronically infected pig-tailed macaque has been shown in previous studies to produce acutely fatal disease uniformly in pig-tailed macaques and in some rhesus macaques. The present study extends investigation of SIVSMM/PBj pathogenesis in rhesus and cynomolgus monkeys. Cynomolgus and rhesus macaques were found to be uniformly susceptible to infection, but as previously reported, the rhesus were found to not be uniform in… CONTINUE READING
