Routine genetic sequencing of the virus showed it looked like no other sample of HIV virus and it was eventually compared to a gorilla simian immunodeficiency virus which was discovered in 2006.
This study was designed to demonstrate whether or not there was a measurable immune system response to delipidated Simian Immunodeficiency Virus ("SIV") in SIV-infected monkeys, a widely-accepted primate model for viral diseases like HIV.
Although scientists agree that HIV comes from a chimpanzee simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) that infected humans, when and how SIV jumped the species barrier has not been definitively determined.
Dr Wolfe said that while the effect on humans was currently unknown, it was possible that a human form of SFV might develop, in the same way that scientists believed that simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) morphed into HIV.
Unregulated movements of wild animals pose a serious risk to public health due to some of the animals in question being potential carriers of diseases, some of which can be fatally infectious for humans such as ebola, simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV)and monkey pox.

Ebola outbreaks have been linked to exposure to gorilla carcasses, and evidence of simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) infection has been found in 26 different species of primates, including chimpanzees and sooty mangabeys, which many researchers believe may be a link to HIV/AIDS.
