Natural Hosts of SIV: Implications in AIDS thoroughly reviews the possible mechanisms by which African nonhuman primate natural hosts of lentiviruses remain essentially disease-free while other hosts exhibit disease and death. The book ultimately indicates directions for further research and potential translations of this compelling phenomenon into novel approaches to treat and prevent HIV. When Asian non-human primate non-natural hosts are experimentally infected with viruses isolated from African species, disease and death normally results. Meanwhile, these African nonhuman primate natural hosts maintain similar levels of plasma and cellular viremia and exhibit compellingly different, essentially disease-free, states. This work attempts to answer the question of how the natural host remains disease resistant.

  • Summarizes the past 30 years of research in this field and describes the latest developments in AIDS research using nonhuman primate animal models
  • Provides insights into how this large body of scientific work can be translated into novel approaches to treat and prevent HIV
  • Highlights the areas that merit future pursuit, focusing on potential applications for the treatment and prevention of HIV infection
