HIV and Aids What are HIV and Aids?

The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a so-called Retrovirus. It writes its genetic material into the genome of the host cell and forces them to reproduce it. HIV infects different body cells, including important cells of the immune system such as phagocytes (macrophages), and helper T cells that coordinate the immune response. In the result, the T-helper cells either die because of cracks in their cell wall, if you make new virus particles into the bloodstream, they initiate programmed cell death, or be killed by their own immune system, because of this you will recognize as infected.

the infection Is not treated, it decreases the number of T-helper cells, the immune system is weaker. The final stage of immunodeficiency is Aids (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).
