HIV infects vital cells in the human immune system such as helper T Cell (specifically CD4+ T cells), macrophages, and dendritic cells. Lentiviruses are transmitted as single-stranded, positive- sense, enveloped RNA viruses. HIV is a retrovirus including reverse transcriptase enzyme
  4. 4. HIV infection • Once HIV infection occurred in persons , it affects the TH cell and other immunity providing component , leads to suppress the immunity that makes the other opportunistic infection cause death within approximately 5 to 10 yrs. • Two life cycle of retroviruses are virulent or lytic cycle causes death within 2-5 yrs and avirulent/profage cycle or lysogenic cycle cause the carrier of this virus.
