Animal models have proven of great importance in clarifying the immunopathogenesis of AIDS. This volume provides a timely description of studies in a diversity of animal models that elucidate important events in the immune containment of HIV infections. These studies involve the use of simian immunodeficiency virus-infected macaques, feline immunodeficiency virus- and feline leukemia virus-infected cats, human immunodeficiency virus-infected chimpanzees, macaques, rabbits and immunodeficient mice, and visna virus-infected sheep. These model systems are described and their unique value in studying AIDS is illustrated. This publication will give immunologists, virologists and pathologists a better understanding of the immune cellular events leading to the progression of AIDS.
