The disease #aids develops from an infection hiv and is caused by the v iris immunodeficiency h umana. Hiv and substance containing rna (ribonucleic acid), unlike many other viruses or human cells whose genetic #information is stored in the form of dna (deoxyribonucleic acid). Therefore, hiv is defined rather as an rna #virus within the group of retroviruses.
The: two #types of hiv are known hiv-1, present worldwide, and hiv-2, which is found mainly in the south Africa.
Both virus types differ in their genetic substance, rna. Thus, hiv-2 rna, called aids virus from monkeys is similar to the green monkeys, while hiv-1 is more like chimpanzees. It is likely that before the explosion and rapid spread of aids in the 1980s had many people already infected with this virus monkey.
Hiv genetic material is surrounded by a protein coat. This property enables the envelope virus from attaching to the human immune cells such as helper t cells (also known as t cells). Infected t cells are destroyed by the virus, so that occurs weakening the immune system over time. This favors the emergence of other diseases.
#hiv is transmitted primarily by blood and sperm. Therefore, people who have unprotected sex or drug addicts who exchange syringes are most prone to the transmission of hiv. In Spain, 79% of hiv cases in 2010 were sexual.
In the case of sex, hiv transmission can occur for the following situations:
for anal or vaginal sex acts (active or passive) with a high risk of infection.
for fellatio in which the semen reaches the mouth (lowest risk).
Less than 1% of transmissions of hiv in 2010 occurred in childbirth because the hiv positive mother infected the child. This form of transmission is attached to a particular risk, because if appropriate prevention measures at birth the possibility that an hiv-positive mother passing the disease to the baby is 15 to 20% are not taken. Also, the transplantation of organs from an hiv positive donor can infect the recipient. The risk of infection in patients requiring blood transfusion or blood product is very rare, because of the strict controls to which they are subjected.
Talk about a 'transmission of aids' is wrong and wrong as it may appear as a result of hiv infection but does not why. What is transmitted is the pathogen (hiv) no disease (aids).
Benefits of getting regular tests for STIs
STIs or sexually transmitted diseases are infections whose transmission to a healthy person from an infected person happens through sexual contact. However, with modern medicine and diagnostic techniques, there are ways to prevent, detect and cure them effectively and quickly.
Not all diseases are curable though and it is best to follow preventive measures. Also, for sexually active adults it is an absolute necessity to get tested regularly for their health as well as the well-being of their partners.
Why do people tend to avoid getting tested for STIs or sexually transmitted infections?
One of the major factors that avert people from regular tests is the social stigma attached with sexually transmitted diseases. It is absolutely imperative for sexually active adults to go for regular checkups so that if they have any infections or diseases, it can be diagnosed quickly and remedial measure can be taken appropriately.
The benefits of regular checkups
Some of the benefits of regular checkups are mentioned here:-
- Regular checkups can detect problems at a stage when the conditions may not have progressed too much and this will make it easily treatable.
- With HIV positive patients, the quicker the testing gets done the quicker the treatment can be started. Thus, can prevent the onset of AIDS.
- Regular checkups can control the progression of the diseases such as Chlamydia, which if left untreated can cause permanent infertility.
- Getting a prospective partner tested is also a good idea as this can enable one to protect themselves from STIs.
- Symptoms for certain STIs can be similar to many other non-sexual or non-venereal diseases. Thus getting tests done is the only way to get to know if there is an STI or if it is some other nonsexual disease.
- HPV or Human Papilloma Virus can be detected easily with regular STI checkups and thus appropriate treatment can be started. If HPV isn't detected early, it can manifest much later in the form of cancer, which makes it more important to get yourself checked early on.
