Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome
Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is a chronic, life-threatening disease of the immune system infected by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). The CD4 T lymphocytes of the immune system are destroyed by the HIV which makes the body prone to serious infections and conditions. AIDS is an advanced stage of HIV infection which is usually spread through physical contact, blood or any other infected liquid medium. Although AIDS doesn’t have any cure, the risk of getting diagnosed can be decreased with the help of highly effective Antiretroviral Therapy (ART). These help in boosting the immune system, resulting in an increased life expectancy.
