Bushmeat poses threat of simian retrovirus transmission to humans

, human-to-human transmission has not yet been shown, and there are almost no data on the occurrence of foamy viruses in human beings. But if foamy viruses also behave like HIV and human T-lymphotropic virus and produce different diseases when different simian foamy viruses are involved, it cannot be excluded that the pathogenicity of foamy viruses with a particular simian strain might emerge in the human population after a long incubation period, and especially as life expectancy increases. Because of Wolfe and colleagues' findings, studies will now need to be started to examine whether in these natural settings in Africa human-to human-transmission occurs with foamy viruses and whether any disease is associated with these infections".
