The article offers information on a research that studies the adaptation behavior towards human tetherin in human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) belonging to groups O and P. It is mentioned that HIV-1 viruses are divided into four groups namely, M, N, O and P and only group M viruses causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) worldwide. It was found that group O and P viruses exhibited inactivity against human tetherin for Vpu and Nef proteins.

    OBJECTIVE: The benefit of self awareness of HIV serostatus is crucial for the prevention and control of a condition which is capable of eroding the entire human race. This study was therefore conducted to assess personal knowledge of HIV serostatus and its determinants in a sample of prospective...

    Background. Rates of perinatal human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) transmission are higher among HIV infected mothers with more advanced disease, but effects of maternal disease on HIV-uninfected offspring are unclear. We investigated the hypothesis that the severity of HIV disease and immune...

    Background: South Africa has a high tuberculosis (TB)-human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) coinfection rate of 73%, yet only 46% of TB patients are tested for HIV. To date, relatively little work has focused on understanding why TB patients may not accept effective services or participate in...

    Background. Mucosal surfaces of the female reproductive tract are the main routes of heterosexual transmission of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), but the contribution of each of the reproductive sites to mucosal transmission is unknown. Methods. We compared levels of HIV-1...
