5.      Deadly diseases often coevolve with their hosts (e.g. myxomatosis and rabbits).  Based on this, what do you predict will happen to the effects of HIV (virus that causes the disease AIDS) on humans over time and why?

Rabbit that suffer a chronic form of myxomatosis recover by themselves. Antibiotics can be given to avoid respiratory complications.

If a rabbit is affected by the aggressive form of myxomatosis, its chances of survival are close to zero. It is then recommended to humanely put the affected animal to sleep.

If treatment is chosen, intensive care over a longer period of time is needed. It is important to keep the sick rabbit in a warm environment (21-22°C). Eyes and ears must be regularly cleaned. As much fluids and food should be given to the rabbit as possible, even if the rabbit is drinking good amounts of water by itself. Skin tumors can be removed surgically.
