New Aggressive HIV Strain Spreading AIDS Worldwide

Even as disease control authorities recognize a new strain of HIV that leads to AIDS in record brief time, there has yet to be issued a definitive statement that the most effective means of stopping the pandemic is abstinence from anal sex -- principally deviant male homosexual sex.

The A3/02 strain combines the two most common HIV strains in Guinea-Bissau and develops into AIDS within five years, up to two-and-a-half years faster than either of its parent strains, said Angelica Palm, one of the scientists behind the study published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases. This type of strain, a recombinant, appears when a person becomes infected by two different strains, allowing DNA to fuse and create a new one.

Researchers from [Sweden's] Lund University warn in the study that recombinant strains may spread more rapidly, in part from immigration to the United State or Europe, and that there are likely many more that still haven’t been identified.

The strain was first discovered by the Swedish team in Guinea-Bissau in 2011.

Some 35.3 million people around the world are living with HIV, which destroys the immune system and has caused more than 25 million deaths since AIDS first emerged in the early 1980s, according to the World Health Organisation.

There is therefore reason to be wary of HIV recombinants in general, researchers said.

"HIV is an extremely dynamic and variable virus. New subtypes and recombinant forms of HIV-1 have been introduced to our part of the world, and it is highly likely that there are a large number of circulating recombinants of which we know little or nothing," said Patrik Medstrand, Professor of Clinical Virology at Lund University.

"We therefore need to be aware of how the HIV-1 epidemic changes over time," Medstrand said.
