    New strain of HIV from gorillas found in woman from Cameroon

    A new strain of the virus that causes Aids has been discovered in a woman from Cameroon.
    It differs from the three known strains of human immunodeficiency virus and appears to be closely related to a form of simian virus recently discovered in wild gorillas, researchers report in the journal Nature Medicine.
    Aids is thought to have jumped gorillas (pictured) to humans as well as chimpanzees
    The finding 'highlights the continuing need to watch closely for the emergence for new HIV variants, particularly in western central Africa,' said the researchers, led by Jean-Christophe Plantier of the University of Rouen in France.
    The three previously known HIV strains are related to the simian virus that occurs in chimpanzees.
    The most likely explanation for the new find is gorilla-to-human transmission, Plantier's team said.
    But they added they cannot rule out the possibility that the new strain started in chimpanzees and moved into gorillas and then humans, or moved directly from chimpanzees to both gorillas and humans.
    The 62-year-old patient tested positive for HIV in 2004, shortly after moving to Paris from Cameroon, according to the researchers.
    She had lived near Yaounde, the capital of Cameroon, but said she had no contact with apes or bush meat.
    The woman currently shows no signs of AIDS and remains untreated, though she still carries the virus, the researchers said.
    How widespread this strain is remains to be determined. Researchers said it could be circulating unnoticed in Cameroon or elsewhere.
    The virus' rapid replication indicates that it is adapted to human cells, the researchers reported.
    Their research was supported by the French Health Watch Institute, the French National Agency for Research on Aids and Viral Hepatitis and Rouen University Hospital.
    A separate paper, also in Nature Medicine, reports that people with genital herpes remain at increased risk of HIV infection even after the herpes sores have healed and the skin appears normal.
    Researchers led by Drs. Lawrence Corey and Jia Zhu of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centre in Seattle found that long after the areas where the herpes sores existed seem to be clear, they still have immune-cell activity that can encourage HIV infection.
    Herpes is marked by recurring outbreaks and has been associated with higher rates of infection with HIV.
    It had been thought that the breaks in the skin were the reason for higher HIV rates, but a study last year found that treatment of herpes with drugs did not reduce the HIV risk.
    The researchers tested the skin of herpes patients for several weeks after their sores had healed and found that, compared with other genital skin, from twice to 37 times more immune cells remained at the locations where the sores had been.
    HIV targets immune cells and in laboratory tests the virus reproduced three to five times faster in tissue from the healed sites as in tissue from other areas.
    'Understanding that even treated (herpes) infections provide a cellular environment conducive to HIV infection suggests new directions for HIV prevention research,' commented Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease.
    That study was funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Tietze Foundation.

    For Ferk sake, I hope i didnt shag this bint when i was in the Cameroon :D
     

  3. As I recall eating meat in Africa, it could have been bloody anything! I suspect that she could have eaten “bush meat†without knowing what it was. That isn’t a criticism. I remember ordering beef in a reputable restaurant in Romania but, in the event, enjoying a rather nice piece of grilled Dobin; rare.

    I f people would stop shagging and sharing needles with Apes and simians we wouldn't be in this scenario. Dirty fcuking fcukers.
     
  5. The famous (-ish) Sitbok Biltong!

    "Taste this Boet"
    "What is it?"
    "Sitbok Biltong, Bru, is Lakker!"
    "Ferk, that's minging, what is it?"
    "Dried-up Monkeys arse cheeks Ma Chaina! With spices"

    Bloody Daily Mail! This article poses more questions than it answers. I always thought that transmission of the HI Virus required blood to blood contact, and the main method of transmission apart from sexual contact was a needle-stick injury in careless medical/nursing staff. If this poor woman had never had sex with a gorilla or been otherwise in contact with such a beast, how TF did she contract HIV? And if she was not ill how did medical staff in France find out she was infected? Do the French screen all passengers from Cameroon for HIV? Is she otherwise ill? As I say, bloody Daily Mail! Can somebody with up to date knowledge enlighten us please?

    So she got Gorilla fcuked then?
     
  8. Re: New strain of HIV from gorillas found in woman from Came

    Not necessarily
    A matelot may have shagged a gorilla as a main course and then shaged her for his desert. :p
     
  9. Re: New strain of HIV from gorillas found in woman from Came

    Nothing to do with me! I never touched the woman 8O
     
  10. Re: New strain of HIV from gorillas found in woman from Came

    Ah! Good point Slim. That's thinking outside the box. :D
     
  11. Re: New strain of HIV from gorillas found in woman from Came

    Which box was it, though? :D
     
  12. Re: New strain of HIV from gorillas found in woman from Came

    Eugh! I couldn't bear to contemplate which one my dear! I'm only a simple little SBA! :pukeleft:
     
  13. Re: New strain of HIV from gorillas found in woman from Came


    I suppose sinking inside that box may be fairly risky :p
     
  14. Wimmen live inside David Cameron!!!!! o_O :lol:
