Sera (165 samples in 1988 and 66, follow-up samples in 1989) were collected from olive baboons, African green monkeys, Syke's monkeys and grey mangabeys kept in a semi-free, breeding colony at the Institute of Primate Research (IPR) in Nairobi, Kenya. The levels of antibodies to simian T-lymphotropic virus (STLV) or simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), and the reactivity patterns of positive sera to various lentivirus subgroup antigens, were then determined. The results of tests using enzyme… CONTINUE READING
