Dear Erling:
Thanks for your interesting letter and papers. I agree that the HIV's warrant subdivision, but it doesn't seem that the ICTV needs to sponsor more discussion since everyone (even the NY Times) appears to have accepted HIV-2. I will be interested to see how closely your isolate is related to Montagnier's. I no longer take HTLV-4 seriously; it appears to be contaminating SIV from macaque. I think our original proposal makes clear the way in which isolates of HIV-2 should be identified (e.g. HIV-2 [STH-1]). As of this month, John Coffin at Tufts will take over as chairman of the Retrovirus Study Group and will be the appropriate recipient of correspondence on such matters.
With best regards,
