HIV in all likelihood arose by adaptation of a closely related virus in a simian species.
Researchers have identified simian immunodeficiency virus in wild apes for the first time.
Some sooty mangabeys in the wild are still infected with the simian version of HIV, called SIV, but the disease doesn't typically kill them.
The simian immunodeficiency virus destabilizes lamellar and promotes hexagonal phase, leading to the speculation that it has an effective negative intrinsic curvature.
In October, Science published the results of research conducted in the United States and Switzerland that managed to block transmission of the simian HIV in macaque monkeys.
They found the gel protected the macaques from infection with the simian HIV virus for more than seven hours.
