Everyone has possibility of contracting AIDS and HIV; it can change one’s world in a heart beat. 1 HIV/AIDS has become a pandemic virus because of how quickly it has spread throughout the entire world. HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus, which means that it is a virus that attacks the immune system and it can only infect humans. HIV are like other viruses but there is an important difference, overtime your immune system can clear most viruses out of your body. HIV is different, the human immune system can’t get rid of it and scientist are still trying to figure out why our immune system can’t clear it.
It is never easy to hear that you have contracted HIV some type of way whether if it was through unprotected sex, needles or from the mother, therefore it is best to get educated and protect yourself from many things. There are many ways that a person can protect themselves from contracting HIV. One of the best ways to know if you have HIV and to stop from spreading it is getting tested. It is okay to talk to your partner about getting tested for the virus. Also, if you use a condom every time you have sex you can lower your risk of contracting and transmitting HIV.
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).
Introduction Even though there is a rapid advancement in medical inventions, still the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is the most challenging virus that will drag the human lives to the deadly disease acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). It spreads its wings all over. HIV cannot be cured, but it can be prevented. It has become the greatest life threatening disease and affects unbelievably high percent of human beings. Nowadays, besides other deadly diseases, HIV/AIDS becomes more complex and crucial health issue that challenges several medical inventions.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus, most people knows this deadly virus as HIV and if not treated early enough, it will develop into AIDS, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, a serious life-threatening condition. HIV interferes with your body’s ability to fight off the organism that causes diseases (Mayo Clinic HIV/AIDS). This infection enters the body when it comes in contact with the tissue of the vaginal, anal area, mouth and or eyes. There are three stages of HIV that have been discovered. This malady dated back not that long ago, only about 33 years ago in the 1980’s and is known to be a slow process.
AIDS is an alarming sickness which is caused by an infection called, HIV. When it gets inside your body, it attacks your immune system instantly. AIDS is a very destructive disease and has spread fast throughout the world because of poverty, massive migrations of people, war and other conflicts across the world, we must help to find a cure. As a result, the virus has greatly affected people in countries across the world, especially Africa. In Africa there are thousands of medical facilities in South Africa and they all have a high occupancy rating.
HIV Treatments and Reducing Drug Resistance Abstract HIV is a retrovirus that will constantly attack human’s immune system once an individual is infected and will eventually develop to AIDS, often a deadly sexually transmitted disease. Currently, there are different kinds of antiretroviral treatments available for patients who are tested to be HIV positive as well as patients with AIDS. HIV can easily develop resistance to its treatment through mutation each generation, which leads to ineffectiveness in treatment. The only way to continue to fight off HIV is to change treatment that is still available. Patients have to cooperate with experienced doctors by adhering to their professional recommendations, while doctors are responsible for closely monitoring the patient’s conditions through test results and their body’s response to treatment, as well as helping them to live healthily without serious damage to their immune system over a long period of time.
Contamination may also occur during surgery involving organ transplants or artificial insemination, when donors are positive serum. Or with health professionals, when happen some accident in their work. Once in the bloodstream, the greater number of units of HIV goes to the sperm and vaginal fluids. It is this quirk of nature that enables the transmission during sex, making AIDS a sexually transmitted disease, venereal disease.... ... middle of paper ... ... for that to happen is that society has become aware that AIDS is there and that the best weapon against it is prevention. To this end, all must remain fully informed on the subject.
The disease is hugely prominent in today’s society and will continue to have a major effect on humanity until a cure is hopefully found. This paper will discuss the pathogenicity of one of the worst diseases in today’s medicine as well as possible treatments. People with HIV have an infection that damages their immune system over time and eventually develops into AIDS. AIDS is the final stage of an HIV infection where the immune system is damaged and too weak to fight off ordinary infections. In a normal healthy human, when foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses get into the body, they can cause infections.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus is a dangerous, deadly disease among the human race. HIV is when the bacteria goes into the lymphocytes, and make the body believe the cell is a germ. Soon after, the immune system will begin to attack itself and will get weaker each time. HIV has infected thousands and thousands of people in the world, from Asia to Europe, to the United States. Millions are infected and this can last for a life time.
