Abstract

The primate models of AIDS provide insights into pathogenesis, transmission, and immune responses to infection and are useful in testing vaccines and drugs. The HIV-1/chimpanzee, SIV(mac)/macaque, and SHIV/macaque models are the most widely used. The advantages and drawbacks of these and other models are discussed.
