Modelos animales de la infección por VIH y del SIDA: Memorándum de una Reunión de la OMS
Animal models may be used for the study of HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infection and AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). Three major animal models that reproduce many aspects of HIV infection in man are available: infection by simian immunodeficiency viruses (SIV) and by non-primates lentiviruses, and HIV infection of non-human primates. The use of primate and nom-primate lentivirus models is critical for the continued development of vaccines and therapeutics for AIDS. This Memorandum describes the present situation in this area of research, as reported by the participants at a WHO Consultation in Geneva, Switzerland, in March 1988, and includes their recommendationsPublicado también en Bull.
