Medical Animation: HIV and AIDS

HIV is the Human
Immunodeficiency Virus. If you have HIV, you
have an infection that damages your immune system
over time, and causes AIDS. AIDS stands for Acquired
Immunodeficiency Syndrome. It is the final stage of
an HIV infection, when your immune system is
damaged and too weak to fight off
ordinary infections. When foreign invaders, such
as bacteria and viruses, get into your body, they
can cause infections. These events activate
your body’s defenses. The white blood cells
of your immune system are part of your
body’s defenses. One type of white
blood cell, called helper T lymphocytes,
or helper T cells, strengthen your immune
system’s response to infection in two ways. First, helper T cells
release chemicals that attract other
white blood cells to the site of the infection. These additional
white blood cells attack the invading bacteria
or virus, as well as other infected cells. Second, helper T cells
release chemicals that cause other white
blood cells to multiply. These new white blood
cells create markers, called antibodies,
which can identify the same foreign invader
throughout your body. Antibodies attach to
the bacteria or virus, marking them as targets for your
immune system to destroy them. If you have HIV, it
travels through your blood and other body fluids to infect
and kill certain white blood cells. The virus enters helper T cells,
which are the primary target. Once inside, the virus
makes many copies of itself. As these virus
particles are made, they leave the damaged helper
T cell to infect other cells. The T cell loses its
ability to protect the body from the ongoing
infection and dies. In this way, HIV
spreads and kills more of your helper T cells,
weakening your immune system. As a result, other
types of infections are able to take advantage
of your body’s inability to defend itself. These infections are called
opportunistic infections. If you have an HIV
infection, and one or more opportunistic infections,
you have AIDS. Some of the common AIDS-related
opportunistic infections are inflammation of the tissues
covering your brain and spinal cord, called meningitis,
inflammation of your brain, called encephalitis. Respiratory illnesses, such
as pneumonia and tuberculosis. Intestinal illnesses,
such as chronic diarrhea caused by infectious parasites. And cancers, such
as Kaposi’s sarcoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. HIV passes from person to person
through infected body fluids. HIV can enter your body during
unprotected sex, while sharing drug injection needles,
during your own childbirth, while breastfeeding
from your mother, or from contaminated
blood or blood products. Although there is
no cure for HIV, drugs called
antiretroviral medications can reduce the amount
of HIV in your body. One class of
antiretroviral medication, called entry or
fusion inhibitors, disrupts the HIV
infection process by preventing the virus from
attaching to your cells. Other classes of
antiretroviral medications include reverse
transcriptase inhibitors, protease inhibitors, and
integrase inhibitors. These drugs prevent the
creation, assembly, and spread of new viruses. Your doctor may prescribe
a combination of these drug classes, known as highly
active antiretroviral therapy, or HAART. Antiretroviral medication
doesn’t completely remove HIV from your body,
but slows it down enough to enable your immune
system to fight infections. Regular blood tests
will let your doctor know how effective your
antiretroviral medication is in controlling HIV. If the number of helper T cells
is high enough in your blood sample, your
medication is working. Treatments for the
opportunistic infections of AIDS are medications specific
for each type of infection. For example, your doctor
may prescribe antibiotics if you have pneumonia
or tuberculosis. To avoid getting or
spreading an HIV infection, know your HIV status and
your partner’s status by getting tested regularly. The most effective way
to prevent HIV infection is to avoid vaginal
and anal sex. When engaging in
sexual activity, you will be less
likely to contract HIV if you only have sex with
one uninfected partner, or use latex condoms
for protection. Avoid using injectable illegal
drugs, or sharing drug needles, because the needles may
have the virus on them. Avoid intoxication
from drugs or alcohol, because you will be
more likely to engage in unsafe sexual behavior.

    I contacted HIV in 2011, I was told by my doctor that there's no possible cure for HIV. I started taking my ARV's, My CD4 was 77 and viral load was 112,450. I have to check on internet if there is cure for HIV because the fear of Disease almost took my life in 2015 due to excess thinking. I saw a lot of testimonials on how Herbal Doctor Obaze uses his herbal medicine to cure HIV and other diseases. I contacted him and told him my problems, he gave me hope and told me to trust in his work. truly I did and He sent me the herbal medicine after purchasing it from him. I received the herbal Cure ans took it for 14 days which was two weeks, and after then I went for check-up and I was confirmed HIV Negative in 4 different hospitals. The medicine has NO SIDE EFFECT, there's no special diet when taking the herbal medicine. the herbal doctor told me he also cure HEPATITIS A TO E, CANCER, HERPES, ALS, DIABETES and lots more.

    This gets worse with age, cause your immune system weakens when youre old, regardless of whether or not you have HIV. So just imagine the uphill battle your white blood cells have to fight when you're 60 and have HIV.

  22. doctor phills says:

    The world has an estimated HIV positive population of billions, making up almost 40% of the global HIV burden. The use of herbal (or traditional) medicine is high in the general population and it is also high among HIV positive people.
    Our investigators went on a research in Africa and collected herbal medicine samples from urban and rural sites in eight states across Nigeria for drug analysis, following a standard protocol. They approached street vendors requesting traditional remedies for non-specific symptoms against a background of HIV and only purchased herbals sold as powders or liquids. They recorded instructions for use, date and site.
    The University of Liverpool analysed the samples for efavirenz, nevirapine, lopinavir, darunavir, ritonavir, atazanavir, tenofovir, FTC, and 3TC using validated LC-MS/MS methods.The investigators found, of 742 patients aged 2 to 91 years, the prevalence of herbal medicine use was 41.8% (310
    The investigators observed wide use of herbal medicines across all ages and in both genders regardless of educational or employment status. In over half the patients using herbal medicines, this preceded starting ART and continued during ART use: 82.2% who used herbal medicines were also receiving ART.
    As the investigation was going on we found out this village herbalist who people around said has cured several persons with his herbal concoctions and we approached him, we went through the products and found truth in it. We bought one of the products and decided to confirm it on one patient here in Douala. The patient took it as instructed thereafter we put him on observations. Some days later we started seeing the changes, his CD4 count was becoming normal. After a week and some days we ran a re run test on him and it came out negative. We then proceed to two other different lab with same results. We (global health researchers) decided to partner with him and also recommend him to every victims/patients.We advised these patients to DM him @dr_agbadon_temple. for more enquiries and how you can get this guaranteed products.

    I worked in San Francisco as the AIDS epidemic was coming under control. Treatments were more available and the initial catastrophe and panic were beginning to wane. But you'd still see guys in horrible shape in wheelchairs at grocery stores. You'd run across someone unexpectedly and you'd be in the uncomfortable position of being respectful and yet wondering if this person just wanted to be invisible. Seeing this animation I think of all those wasted bodies and how this biochemical process was efficiently destroying people.

    Good day everyone,If getting herpes cure was that easy then why do a lot of people still suffer from herpes?. i was diagnosed of herpes back in 2013 and i was also told it has no cure, i have been leaving with it since then, but i kept praying and doing everything possible to get cured, so i never stopped doing research about finding a cure, i came across testimonies about people getting cured through herbal medication, and i have always believe in herbs and its medical properties, after doing so many research about it i found Dr. Daniel dave and i discovered he was a professional in herbal medication and he has also helped many people,we talked on phone and i confirmed he was genuine, i did all what he told me to do, i received the medicine, used it as he has prescribed, and glory be to God almighty i am completely cured, i went back to my doctor to confirm it. Do not be deceived THERE IS A CURE FOR HERPES, doctors might tell you there is no cure but WITH HERBAL MEDICATION THERE IS A CURE and if you need it contact Dr. Daniel dave.

    it’s interesting , these words and their double meaning , for example the English word he is pronounced hi meaning ‘enter’ , which is a male , called ai , hi’v means entering where it’s not supposed to and AI’ds means a wannabe male , according to my personal experience entering a women anal doesn’t bring infections , which leads me to the conclusion that this comes from males entering males , if you want my opinion it’s nonwhites who look white and live among whites who are doing this to kill off whites , the infection can that infect women and other males , at least this is how it started , the biggest problem is brown whitewashed women among whites , i think she’s doing and pushing this , also betraying her white husbands outbreeding whites
    the damn problem is that according to nature , hyenas can communicate clearly to each other while lions can’t

  91. Lance May says:

    So I had this idea. They tried heating blood to kill hiv. But it didn't work because the virus hides itself in the bone marrow. So what if they heated up fluid in used a intravenous os to circulate the heat med fluid? What if they tried my different sites and used a gental chemotherapy medication. And what if they used multiple treatments? As well as flushing out other body cavities with acidic solutions such as vinegar water? Like a duche or enema? I know my body likes hot tubes uo to 115 120 degrees. Does anyone still read my ideas? I think everything is worth trying.

  92. Lance May says:

    What if they used ART and decreases the cral load and then did all these steps in addition to the medication treatment? I think some doctors should experiment with these other alternatives. I. Sure the treatments would make them a lot of money.

  93. Lance May says:

    Dying people have nothing to lose by alternatives in treatments. That's my opinion.
