  1. 1. Personal perspective: an HIV-positive family http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDFiAfJC848
  2. 2. Introduction • This module uses an inquiry-based approach using video, mathematical modeling, world mapping, and bioinformatics to follow the progression and understanding of HIV-AIDS. • The problem is designed for undergraduate students in the life sciences and mathematics. • Using global health cases, visualization data, and mathematical models, students working collaboratively will share what they know about HIV-AIDS.
  3. 3. • A mathematical model will enable them to compute the intensity of the HIV-AIDS epidemic, calculate the half-life of disease progression, and measure the effects of interventions. • Based on Markham data (as referenced by Sam Donovan), students will be able to design questions to correlate, classify, and compare CD4 counts and various HIV clones as well as build phylogenetic trees. Introduction (cont.)
  4. 4. What we need to know? Potential students questions • Effectiveness • Resistance • Demographics • Difference between HIV/AIDS • What kind of virus is HIV? •Education •Transmission •Vaccines Prevention What is HIV? Treatment Cost

  19. 19. HIV Infection and AIDS • An often asymptomatic infection caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). • AIDS is the advanced state of the disease characterized by a series of opportunistic infections occurring due to an immunosupressed state.
  20. 20. AIDS Definition (CDC) • HIV+ and a CD4 count of 200/mm3 or less* • At least one out of 26 defined opportunistic infections such as: – Pneumocystic carinii pneumonia (PCP) – Kaposi’s Sarcoma – Systemic Candidiasis * For people 13 year of age or older
  21. 21. HIV Transmission • Sexual transmission – Through the mucosal membranes: vagina, vulva, urethra, rectum and mouth. • Blood or blood products – Diminished risk by blood transfusions. • Syringes – Intravenous drug users. • Vertical transmission from mother to child – Depends on the delivery method.
  22. 22. HIV is not transmitted through… • casual contact • shearing silverware, towels or clothing. • saliva • sweat • tears • swiming pools • telephones • toilets • door knobs • insect bites
  23. 23. • T-helper Lymphocytes (CD4 cells) are essential for the proper function of the immune system helping in antibody production against infectious agents. • The HIV virus targets CD4 lymphocytes destroying them as the newly made viruses exit the cell. • As the amount of virus (viral load) increases in a subject, the number of viable CD4 cells (CD4 count) decreases. The HIV virus infects and destroys CD4 cells
  24. 24. HIV infection depends on the recognition of surface molecules on the CD4 cell. • The first step in HIV infection is the binding of the CD4 molecule in the lymphocyte surface with the viral receptor protein GP120. • The HIV-CD4 complex then binds the CCR5 molecule that serves as a co-receptor for HIV infection. •The viral GP120 binds to the co- receptor through a specific protein domain known as the V3 loop. •Differences in the viral DNA gene sequence encoding the V3 loop may affect viral recognition of the target cell. • Differences in the viral DNA sequence accounts for different strains of the HIV virus. An infected individual often has several viral strains.
