Retrovirology. 2005 Feb 16;2(1):10 [Epub ahead of print] Molecular strategies to inhibit HIV-1 replication. Nielsen MH, Pedersen FS, Kjems J. The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) is the primary cause of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), which is a slow, progressive and degenerative disease of the human immune system. The pathogenesis of HIV-1 is complex and characterized by the interplay of both viral and host factors. An intense global research effort into understanding the individual steps of the viral replication cycle and the dynamics during an infection has inspired researchers in the development of a wide spectrum of antiviral strategies. Practically every stage in the viral life cycle and every viral gene product is a potential target. In addition, several strategies are targeting host proteins that play an essential role in the viral life cycle. This review summarizes the main genetic approaches taken in such antiviral strategies.

I don't think you will find what you are looking for in this article, it doesn't directly relate to what you want, but I posted it because anyone can view it while it's ahead of publication. Pretty interesting. Here's the link to the pdf. http://www.retrovirology.com/content/pdf/1742-4690-2-10.pdf Mosley A. Does HIV or poverty cause AIDS? Biomedical and epidemiological perspectives.
