HIV virus and lymphocyte


Color enhanced transmission electron micrograph of HIV Viruses infecting a T-4 lymphocyte. Human Immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is the causative agent of AIDS. HIV is spread through intimate contact with an infected person (sexual contact, shared intravenous needles). HIV invades the T-lymphocyte cells of the immune system, and reprograms the cells to produce HIV. AIDS develops as the bodies' immune system is destroyed and the number of T cells dwindles. Without T cells, AIDS patients have little defense against infection. 120,000x 70 mm.
