AIDS/HIV

The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) targets the cells of an infected individual’s immune system to progressively damage and destroy the natural functions of immune defense.  Resulting in immunodeficiency, the retrovirus causes an increasing susceptibility to opportunistic infections and cancers, and, during the most advanced stages of HIV infection, progresses into acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), or the simultaneous occurrence of more than 20 opportunistic infections and/or related cancers.  Current research concerning HIV infection and AIDS focuses upon developing improvements to modern methods of treatment and prevention, and the possible discovery of new methods for the treatment, prevention and vaccination of the retrovirus.
