Submission + - New HIV Strain Discovered in Woman From Cameroon 1

barnyjr writes: From the story: A new strain of the virus that causes AIDS was discovered in a woman from the African nation of 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 Monday's edition of the journal Nature Medicine. ...The most likely explanation for the new find is gorilla-to-human transmission, Plantier's team said.
