Wound repair of mucous tissues during early infection by Simian Immunodeficiency Virus guards some primate species from contracting AIDS, a study has learned.  The researchers looked at why certain species can carry SIV throughout their lives without getting AIDS.

SIV is closely related to HIV, or the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, and has become a laboratory model for studies seeking AIDS and HIV cures and prevention.
