Hiv-Human Immunodeficiency Virus attacks and destroys the immune system cells also known as T-helper cells or CD4 cells by attacking them. These immune system cells are really important for the functioning of the body because these cells kill the cells which are infected with germs; hence the T-helper cells are essential for keeping the immune system of the body in a good condition. It is possible that a person who is suffering from HIV shows no signs of the virus. If the condition is not treated, the T-helper cell count downsurges and a condition come when the cell count is so low that the person infected with the HIV gets AIDS.
Through proper Hiv Counselling Doctors in India, one can get the education which is required in the field.
How Hiv Infects the Body:
1. Binding and fusion: The first thing that HIV does to the body is, it attaches with the T-helper cell and the content of the HIV virus gets inside the T-helper cells.
2. Reverse transcription and integration: After changing the genetic material, HIV RNA to HIV DNA with the help of an enzyme through reverse transcriptase, the infected DNA starts controlling the T-helper cell.
3. Transcription and Translation: After that, the HIV DNA infects the messenger RNA and takes it to the edge of the cell. Now it makes more HIV.
4. Assembly, budding and maturation: The amount of infected HIV multiplies and infects the other cells of the body and the process continues.
With the dramatic fall in the count of T-helper cell (approximately 200 cells per cubic millimetre) the infected person gets progressed to AIDS - Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. With proper medications and help of Hiv Counselling Doctors in India, the infected person can live a long life without any threat of death.
