Scientists have discovered a new strain of HIV for the first time in nearly two decades

Researchers have said “there’s no reason to panic” about the discovery of an “outlier” HIV strain. The subtype is the first to be officially discovered since guidelines for classifying HIV subtypes were published in 2000, and has taken experts several years to pinpoint. The first two examples of the new strain were discovered in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 1983 and 1990. But in order for scientists to declare it officially, a third case was needed. This was found in 2001, but to be sure that it matched the...

Scientists have discovered HIV-1 group M subtype L, the first new strain of the HIV virus in 19 years during efforts to ensure that diagnostic tests for blood screening and detecting infectious diseases remain current. Scientific American reports: “In the early days of HIV/AIDS in the 1980s and 1990s, some blood donors unaware that they had HIV added the virus to the blood supply. A large number of patients who needed regular blood transfusions—among them, many with hemophilia—ended up contracting HIV and often dying. The supply has been essentially clear...
