Special Issue "Nonprimate Lentivirus"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2018).
Interests: feline viral discovery; pathogenesis and viral ecology; ecology of infectious disease
Interests: EIAV; influenza; virus–host interaction; pathogenesis
Nonprimate lentiviruses, notably lentiviruses of felids, equids, and ruminants, are important worldwide pathogens that cause chronic lifelong disease in a species-specific manner. Viral pathogenesis, epidemiology, viral ecology and evolution, host restriction and immunological perturbations caused by these agents have important implications in naturally occurring infections in native hosts. Studies of the comparative pathogenesis and prophylactic or interventional therapies for these agents can significantly advance our understanding of HIV–AIDS. This Special Issue of Viruses will provide reviews, contemporary research reports, and commentaries about these fascinating and often overlooked agents.
