Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (SIV) is a member of the lentivirus genus of the family Retroviridae. Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (SIV) infection of non-human primates is a well-established animal model for studying Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). While SIV infections in their natural host species (African monkeys and chimpanzees) are rarely pathogenic, cross-species SIV infections in macaques are an extensively studied model for HIV pathogenesis, therapeutics and vaccine development.
