MCD Bio 40 – Winter 2010 Lecture 12 – Last part only: Origins & Diversity of HIV (see Lecture 14 for study questions) Lecture 13 – canceled Lecture 14 - HIV Transmission: Global Patterns Lecture 15 - Kathie Grovit-Ferbas: HIV Vaccines Lecture 16 - David Gere: Make Art/Stop AIDS Lecture 17 – Groups at High Risk Lecture 18 – Prevention: Focus on Africa Clinics - We discussed one part of the film ‘3 Needles’ in Clinic 8 and we watched/discussed two parts of the documentary ‘Pandemic: Facing AIDS’ in Clinic 9. I also explained the “100% Condom Use” prevention program in Clinic 9. Keep in mind that you need to be up to date on the readings in ‘100 Q & A’. You should use both the lecture slides and your notes to find the answers to the questions/prompts below. You need your notes especially when I created definitions, explanations, tables etc. on the blackboard. Also remember that you can refer to the audio recordings on www.bruincast.ucla.edu to review the lectures. I expect you to know the material at the level discussed in lecture. This is why I take my time in lecture and give you plenty of opportunity to ask for clarifications. Study Questions Lecture 14 - HIV Origin and Diversity; HIV Transmission: Global Patterns HIV – origins, strains and subtypes 1. Explain the difference between HIV-1 and HIV-2. 2. What is the difference between SIV and HIV? From which primate species is HIV-1 derived and from which primate species is HIV-2 derived? 3. How may the transfer from non-human primates into humans have happened? Was this a single occurrence or did this happen multiple times? 4. When is the origin of HIV-1 estimated to have happened? 5. What are the different groups of HIV-1 and what distinguishes them? 6. Which subtypes are most common in Africa and which is most common in the US & most of the rest of the world? 7. Are subtypes equally virulent? With regard to statistics/specific numbers 8. Are the statistics given (at any point in the lecture) exact numbers or estimates? What does the quality of these estimates depend on? 9. Memorize global prevalence & incidence & the overall patterns of new infections per day in 2007 (e.g. slides 13, 20)
