Abstract

Acquired immuno-deficiency syndrome (AIDS) of macaques, an animal model for human AIDS, was transmitted to previously healthy macaque monkeys by means of inoculation of either tissue or a cell-free filtrate of a macaque lymphoma. The recipients showed evidence of profound lymphocyte dysfunction or died with infections from such opportunistic agents as Candida albicans, Cryptosporidium, and cytomegalovirus.
