Studies done thus far for the Mimivirus have involved genome sequencing and looking into its origin. There were some serology evidence of Mimivirus in humans with infection with pneumonia, but there were also other studies that did NOT find any Mimivirus relations to pneumonia patients (Reynolds, 2010). Because of this debate of these “mixed research,” results of Mimivirus began to raise doubt. Since, the correlations are still confusing; scientists are not researching therapeutic methods, but rather try to understand the relations of pneumonia to Mimivirus.
