Persistent GBV-C infection of humans with coexistent human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is associated with prolonged survival, and GBV-C replication inhibits HIV replication in vitro. A GBV-C virus variant was identified in chimpanzees in 1998 and was named GBV-C(trog) or GBV-C(cpz). The prevalence and natural history of GBV-C in chimpanzees remains uncharacterized. We examined the sera from 235… CONTINUE READING
