Viral Packaging Question

Hi all,
I just ran across an interesting article in an old Science (Levinson, et al. Sc
ience, 1972 172:76).  It reports that host DNA is carried over in the Rous Sarc
oma virion.  First, I wondered if this has been verified again in the past 20
years.  Also, does anyone know if host DNA is found in the HIV particles that
are shed?

P.S. I had  attempted an earlier post of this question but the post never
made it out as far as I can tell.  Please disregard any duplication.
