JAMA. 2008;300(5):496. doi:10.1001/jama.300.5.496-c

Individuals infected with a mutated HIV strain transmitted from those with a genetic advantage to control the virus experience improved survival, according to a new study by South African researchers (Chopera DR et al. PLoS Pathog. 2008;4[3]:e1000033). The work was conducted by CAPRISA (Centre for the AIDS Program of Research in South Africa) investigators at the Universities of Cape Town, KwaZulu-Natal, Western-Cape, and the National Institute of Communicable Diseases in South Africa.
