The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of GB virus C (GBV-C) on the natural history of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in subjects co-infected with HIV and HCV. The o...
Infection with human respiratory syncytial (RS) virus is the most common cause of hospital stay due to pediatric lower respiratory tract infection. An exaggerated immune response contribut...
Currently, there are no licensed therapeutics against Zika virus infection. Due to this unmet medical need, Zika Virus Immune Globulin (ZIKV-IG) is being developed as a therapeutic interve...
The purpose of this study is to learn about how different immunosuppressant therapies impact on recurrent hepatitis C virus infection in the new liver after liver transplant. We will be ev...
The conventional way to control HIV infection is the usage of a drug cocktail capable of suppressing the viral replication cycle, commonly known as antiretroviral therapy (ART). Despite ef...
Simian T-Leukemia Virus type 1 and Simian Foamy Virus infect non-human primates. While STLV-1, as HTLV-1, causes Adult T-cell Leukemia/lymphoma, SFV infection is asymptomatic. Both retroviruses can be...
Macrophage (mac)-tropic human immnunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) and simian immnunodeficiency virus (SIV) in brain are associated with neurological disease. Mac-tropic HIV-1 evolves enhanced CD4 i...
The retroviral Gag protein, the major component of released particles, plays different roles in particle assembly, maturation or infection of new host cells. Here, we characterize the Gag chromatin bi...
Due to the large geographical overlap of populations exposed to Zika virus (ZIKV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), understanding the disease pathogenesis of co-infection is urgently needed. Thi...
Bovine foamy virus (BFV) is endemic in many countries, but has not been reported in Japan. A syncytium-forming virus was isolated from peripheral blood leukocytes of clinically healthy cattle on a far...
Genus of non-oncogenic retroviruses which establish persistent infections in many animal species but are considered non-pathogenic. Its species have been isolated from primates (including humans), cattle, cats, hamsters, horses, and sea lions. Spumaviruses have a foamy or lace-like appearance and are often accompanied by syncytium formation. SIMIAN FOAMY VIRUS is the type species.
A species of SPUMAVIRUS causing non-pathogenic infections in chimpanzees and humans.
A species in the family DELTARETROVIRUS, comprising strains from different host species but arising from the same geographic origin. They include HUMAN T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 2; SIMIAN T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 2; and Simian T-lymphotropic virus - PP.
Acquired defect of cellular immunity that occurs naturally in macaques infected with SRV serotypes, experimentally in monkeys inoculated with SRV or MASON-PFIZER MONKEY VIRUS; (MPMV), or in monkeys infected with SIMIAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS.
An HIV species related to HIV-1 but carrying different antigenic components and with differing nucleic acid composition. It shares serologic reactivity and sequence homology with the simian Lentivirus SIMIAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS and infects only T4-lymphocytes expressing the CD4 phenotypic marker.
