Thanks to the efforts made for research , and treatments have been made to control the virus. Most importantly, the HIV/AIDS virus cannot replicate violently in the immune system because of these treatments. I think humans hold the real key to cure, if they would think about there actions before they do them, then we can save a lot more lives from the virus and stop the spread of it. Sharing needles with infected individual is a way of acquiring the disease. If we do this the percentage of people with HIV/AIDS will decrease significantly.
No one can really know if they are accidentally transmitting it to someone else that is not aware that the other person is diagnosed with the disease. As a conclusion, it is important that people know the danger of HIV/AIDS and actions to prevent more lives to be at risk should be taken. Especially when there is still no cure that is yet to be found, this disease should be eradicated by creating awareness to the public about the HIV/AIDS. In addition to that, the preventions for the disease should also be a common knowledge to the people around the world.
Getting HIV means you have it for life. The virus immediately begins attacking the cells in your body called T-cells or CD4 cells. These cells are used by the body to fight infections and diseases. When the HIV virus attacks these cells, they duplicate themselves. Most people are not even aware that they are infected with the HIV virus for long periods of time, sometimes even years.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus, is also known as HIV. Human Immunodeficiency Virus attacks and weakens the immune system by causing important cells that fight disease and infection to vanish. HIV is most like other viruses, the flu or the common cold, except there is a difference. As time passes, the immune system can clear out most infections out of the body. The situation with HIV is the human immune system can't seem to dispose the infection.
There are new things to invent, cures for many diseaeses, including an immunization and cure for aids. The result of this disease is the destruction of the patient's immune system. Since the infected person has no ability to fight off any infection because the virus is destroying the cells that normally fight infection, the person then becomes susceptible to all other diseases. I understand first hand what one goes through while fighting this disease. My Uncle Dale, passed at the age of thirty-eight.
The only way to prolong the virus is to follow doctor's orders and take medications like AZT (A drug that helps people with HIV/AIDS, by following this advice a person can only hope that it will help them. So if there is no cure for HIV/AIDS than why do so many people contract it knowing that they will eventually die? The reason older people contract AIDS is usually because they are careless and have either unprotected sex or they use drugs.
This is a disease known as AIDS. AIDS is a fatal disease without a cure and a disease that responds to little treatment. How can the spread of AIDS be stopped? This paper will discuss the nature of the AIDS virus, the transmission and the prevention of transmission, as well as the available treatments for people with this disease. First of all, AIDS is an acronym for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.
Lymphocytes help defend the body from infections. As the HIV attacks the lymphocytes, the immune system will decrease in strength. When people have a weaker immune system, they will eventually get more infections that can be more harmful and deadly. There is no ultimate cure for HIV, but medicines, provided by doctors, can slow down the process. HIV later becomes AIDS, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.
Some might not know that AIDS is in fact the final stage of the HIV infection. HIV is the Human Immunodeficiency Virus that can only infect human beings. This is similar to many other viruses like the flu but there is one very important difference. Our bodies for some reason are not able to get rid of this horrible virus and scientist are still trying to figure out why this is ("What Is HIV/AIDS?," 2012). This virus weakens your immune system by destroying cells that are important to fighting disease and infection ("What Is HIV/AIDS?," 2012).
Until scientists and doctors are able to find a medicine that can cure them, many people will continue to be affected by these diseases. This research paper will break down each virus separately to better explain what they exactly are and how they affect people by their signs, symptoms, etc. The first virus I researched was that of HIV. HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus. To better break it down, the “H’ stands for human because this particular virus can only infect humans.
