HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is recognized as the etiologic agent of Acquired immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The virus is transmitted by sexual contact, exposure to infected blood, certain body fluids or tissues, and from mother to fetus or child during the perinatal period. HIV-1 has been isolated from patients with high potential risk of developing AIDS.
HIV-1 appears to be the most common one while HIV-2 is mostly found in patient samples from West African region. Its course is marked by increasing levels of viral replication and the emergence of more virulent viral strains. This process causes the destruction of the immune system. HIV infection is staged by CD4 cell counts and clinical symptoms. Not all people progress through all “stages” and the time frames may also very greatly from person to person.
