ABSTRACT
Reports on research by British scientists which shows that a retrovirus that causes AIDS in monkeys can revert from a weak to a virulent form within weeks by repairing a tiny fragment of missing genetic material. Researchers' concern over other scientists who are against developing AIDS vaccines based on live HIV which have been weakened by removing parts of its genome; Methodology used in the research.
