Simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), also known as African Green Monkey virus, is a retrovirus able to infect at least 33 species of African primates. SIV has been present in monkeys and apes for at least 32,000 years, probably longer. Strains from two of these primate species have crossed the barriers into humans resulting in HIV-2 and HIV-1. Contraction involves contact with the blood of chimps that are often hunted for bushmeat in Africa. SIV infections appear in many cases to be...
