AIDS is a chronic, life-threatening disease caused by a virus that causes failure / deficiency in the human immune system (HIV / Human Immunodeficiency Virus). Or, in short: HIV.
In short: HIV.
How does HIV work? The AIDS virus takes away the body's ability to fight and resist viruses, bacteria and fungi by infecting the immune system, making the body vulnerable to various diseases.
HIV (HIV) shows the human body to develop certain types of cancer and inflammation, which the body, in general, can fight and overcome, such as pneumonia and meningitis. The virus and infection caused by HIV are called HIV.
The term "acquired immunodeficiency syndrome" (AIDS) defines HIV / AIDS in its most advanced stages.
Some 39.5 million people worldwide are infected with HIV today. Although AIDS has been curbed in several countries of the world, the prevalence of HIV / AIDS is still the same, and has increased in other countries.
The solution is to prevent the spread of AIDS in: prevention, treatment and awareness.
In the early stages of exposure to HIV, there may be no signs or symptoms of AIDS, although very common in AIDS is the appearance of flu-like symptoms, which soon disappear after two to four weeks from the moment of exposure to the AIDS virus.
Symptoms of AIDS may include:
High fever (fever) Headache, sore throat Inflammation in the lymphatic region Rash.
If someone has been exposed to the AIDS virus, it is likely that the AIDS virus will be transmitted to other people (infected with the HIV virus), even if it has no AIDS symptoms.
Once the HIV virus enters the body, the immune system becomes vulnerable to attack. The HIV virus multiply and multiply itself within the lymph nodes, and then begins a slow destruction of Lymphocytes T CD4 - the white blood cells responsible for coordinating all the processes and activities of the immune system.
The patient may not have any symptoms in the advanced stages of AIDS within a period of one to nine years, and even more sometimes in some cases.
In the meantime, however, the HIV virus continues to multiply, multiply itself and systematically destroy immune system cells.
At this stage the patient may have some symptoms of chronic AIDS, such as:
Inflammation of lymph nodes (often an early symptom of HIV infection) Diarrhea It weighs
High body temperature (fever) Cough The same tightness.
