  • Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) can be caused by either of two retroviruses, known as human immunodeficiency virus types 1 and 2 (HIV-l and HIV-2). Related viruses have been isolated from a number of other primate species; these have been termed simian immunodeficiency viruses (SIV), although in their natural hosts they do not appear to cause disease. Since complete or partial sequences have been determined for very large numbers of both HIVs and SIVs, and because they exhibit an… CONTINUE READING
