Anti-HIV protein evolved millions of years before AIDS

Maybe someone with a better grounding in immunology can answer my question. Does this mean AIDS-like diseases have been around millions of years, or that the protein involved here simply is a catch-all kind of thing that tackles HIV and numerous other, older bugs as well? Question 2: Now that it’s identified, what good is it? Can medicines be devloped with it/based on it?
