Scientists Announce Discovery of New HIV Strain.

A recently-published study in the 'Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes' has reported the discovery of a new strain of HIV.

The strain, dubbed HIV-1 subtype L, is the first new strain of the AIDS-causing virus to be found since 2000.

.

According to the study’s co-author, Dr. Carole McArthur, the discovery is a reminder of the diseases continued “evolution.”.

This discovery reminds us that to end the HIV pandemic, we must continue to out think this continuously-changing virus and use the latest advancements in technology and resources to monitor its evolution, Dr. Carole McArthur, University of Missouri, to CNN.

The new strain is reportedly not a cause for alarm, as it is an “outlier” that has not effected a large number of people.

.

There's no reason to panic or even to worry about it a little bit … Not a lot of people are infected with this.

This is an outlier, Dr. Anthony Fauci, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to CNN.

Although it is not known how HIV-1 subtype L affects patients with the disease, it is believed that the strain responds positively to current HIV treatments
