How aids come from somewhere. What is the precaution to control aids. How they figure.
Scientists identified a type of chimpanzee in West Africa as the source of HIV infection in humans. They believe that the chimpanzee version of the immunodeficiency virus (called simian immunodeficiency virus, or SIV) most likely was transmitted to humans and mutated into HIV when humans hunted these chimpanzees for meat and came into contact with their infected blood. Studies show that HIV may have jumped from apes to humans as far back as the late 1800s. Over decades, the virus slowly spread across Africa and later into other parts of the world. We know that the virus has existed in the United States since at least the mid- to late 1970s. WHAT IS AIDS? “AIDS” stands for Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. To understand what that means, let’s break it down: A – Acquired – AIDS is not something you inherit from your parents. You acquire AIDS after birth. I – Immuno – Your body's immune system includes all the organs and cells that work to fight off infection or disease. D – Deficiency – You get AIDS when your immune system is "deficient, or isn't working the way it should. S – Syndrome – A syndrome is a collection of symptoms and signs of disease. AIDS is a syndrome, rather than a single disease, because it is a complex illness with a wide range of complications and symptoms. As noted above, AIDS is the final stage of HIV infection, and not everyone who has HIV advances to this stage. People at this stage of HIV disease have badly damaged immune systems, which put them at risk for opportunistic infections (OIs). You are considered to have progressed to AIDS if you have one or more specific OIs, certain cancers, or a very low number of CD4 cells. If you have AIDS, you will need medical intervention and treatment to prevent death. HOW DO YOU GET HIV? Certain body fluids from an HIV-infected person can transmit HIV. These body fluids are: Blood Semen (cum) Pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum) Rectal fluids Vaginal fluids Breast milk These body fluids must come into contact with a mucous membrane or damaged tissue or be directly injected into your bloodstream (by a needle or syringe) for transmission to possibly occur. Mucous membranes are the soft, moist areas just inside the openings to your body. They can be found inside the rectum, the vagina or the opening of the penis, and the mouth. HOW IS HIV SPREAD? Having sex with someone who has HIV. In general: Anal sex (penis in the anus of a man or woman) is the highest-risk sexual behavior. Receptive anal sex (“bottoming”) is riskier than insertive anal sex (“topping”). Vaginal sex (penis in the vagina) is the second highest-risk sexual behavior. Having multiple sex partners or having sexually transmitted infections can increase the risk of HIV infection through sex. Sharing needles, syringes, rinse water, or other equipment (“works”) used to prepare injection drugs with someone who has HIV. Less commonly, HIV may be spread by: Being born to an infected mother. HIV can be passed from mother to child during pregnancy, birth, or breastfeeding. Being stuck with an HIV-contaminated needle or other sharp object. This is a risk mainly for health care workers. Receiving blood transfusions, blood products, or organ/tissue transplants that are contaminated with HIV. Eating food that has been pre-chewed by an HIV-infected person. The contamination occurs when infected blood from a caregiver’s mouth mixes with food while chewing, and is very rare. Being bitten by a person with HIV. Each of the very small number of documented cases has involved severe trauma with extensive tissue damage and the presence of blood. There is no risk of transmission if the skin is not broken. Oral sex—using the mouth to stimulate the penis, vagina, or anus (fellatio, cunnilingus, and rimming). Giving fellatio (mouth to penis oral sex) and having the person ejaculate (cum) in your mouth is riskier than other types of oral sex. Contact between broken skin, wounds, or mucous membranes and HIV-infected blood or blood-contaminated body fluids. These reports have also been extremely rare. Deep, open-mouth kissing if the person with HIV has sores or bleeding gums and blood is exchanged. HIV is not spread through saliva. Transmission through kissing alone is extremely rare. HIV is NOT spread by: Air or water Insects, including mosquitoes or ticks Saliva, tears, or sweat Casual contact, like shaking hands, hugging or sharing dishes/drinking glasses Drinking fountains Toilet seats HIV is not spread through the air and it does not live long outside the human body. Having an undetectable viral load greatly lowers the chance that a person living with HIV can transmit the virus to a partner, but there is still some risk. “Viral load” refers to the amount of HIV in an infected person’s blood. An “undetectable viral load” is when the amount of HIV in a person’s blood is so low that it can’t be measured. Antiretroviral therapy (ART) reduces a person’s viral load, ideally to an undetectable level, when taken consistently and correctly. However, a person with HIV can still potentially transmit HIV to a partner even if they have an undetectable viral load, because: HIV may still be found in a person’s genital fluids (e.g. Semen, vaginal fluids). The viral load test only measures virus in a person’s blood. A person’s viral load may go up between tests. When this happens, they may be more likely to transmit HIV to partners. Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) increase viral load in a person’s genital fluids.

HIV

MBBS, PG Diploma (HIV Medicines)
General Physician, Surat
HIV

Signs symptoms

What are the symptoms of hiv?
The symptoms of hiv vary, depending on the individual and what stage of the disease you are in.

Early stage of hiv: symptoms
Within 2-4 weeks after hiv infection, many, but not all, people experience flu-like symptoms, often described as the  worst flu ever. this is called acute retroviral syndrome (ars) or primary hiv infection and it's the body's natural response to the hiv infection.

Symptoms can include:
Fever (this is the most common symptom)
Swollen glands
Sore throat
Rash
Fatigue
Muscle and joint aches and pains
Headache

These symptoms can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. However, you should not assume you have hiv if you have any of these symptoms. Each of these symptoms can be caused by other illnesses. Conversely, not everyone who is infected with hiv develops ars. Many people who are infected with hiv do not have any symptoms at all for 10 years or more.

You cannot rely on symptoms to know whether you have hiv. The only way to know for sure if you are infected with hiv is to get tested. If you think you have recently been exposed to hiv if you have had oral, vaginal or anal sex without a condom with a known hiv positive person or a partner whose hiv status you do not know or shared needles to inject drugs get an hiv test. Traditional hiv tests detect hiv antibodies. But during this early stage your body is not yet producing these antibodies. A new hiv test was approved in 2013 that can detect the presence of hiv in your body during this early stage of infection. So no matter where you get tested, it is very important to let your provider know that you may have been recently infected with hiv and you would like to be tested for acute hiv.

It is important to remember that with or without symptoms, you are at particularly high risk of transmitting hiv to your sexual or drug using partners during this time because the levels of hiv in your blood stream are very high. For this reason, it is very important to take steps to reduce your risk of transmission.

The clinical latency stage
After the early stage of hiv infection, the disease moves into a stage called the clinical latency stage.  latency means a period where a virus is living or developing in a person without producing symptoms. During the clinical latency stage, people who are infected with hiv experience no hiv-related symptoms, or only mild ones. (this stage is sometimes called asymptomatic hiv infection or chronic hiv infection.

During the clinical latency stage, the hiv virus reproduces at very low levels, although it is still active. If you take antiretroviral therapy(art), you may live with clinical latency for several decades because treatment helps keep the virus in check. (read more about hiv treatment.) for people who are not on art, this clinical latency stage lasts an average of 10 years, but some people may progress through this phase faster.

It is important to remember that people in this symptom-free period are still able to transmit hiv to others even if they are on art, although art greatly reduces the risk of transmission.

Again, the only way to know for sure if you are infected with hiv is to get tested. Tests are available that can detect the virus at this stage.

Progression to aids: symptoms

If you have hiv and you are not taking hiv medication (antiretroviral therapy), eventually the hiv virus will weaken your body's immune system. The onset of symptoms signals the transition from the clinical latency stage to aids (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).

During this late stage of hiv infection, people infected with hiv may have the following symptoms:
Rapid weight loss
Recurring fever or profuse night sweats
Extreme and unexplained tiredness
Prolonged swelling of the lymph glands in the armpits, groin, or neck
Diarrhea that lasts for more than a week
Sores of the mouth, anus, or genitals
Pneumonia
Red, brown, pink, or purplish blotches on or under the skin or inside the mouth, nose, or eyelids
Memory loss, depression, and other neurologic disorders.

Each of these symptoms can be related to other illnesses. So, as noted above, the only way to know for sure if you are infected with hiv is to get tested.

Many of the severe symptoms and illnesses of hiv disease come from the opportunistic infections that occur because your body's immune system has been damaged.

This early-release guideline makes available two key recommendations that were developed during the revision process in 2015. First, antiretroviral therapy (ART) should be initiated in everyone living with HIV at any CD4 cell count. Second, the use of daily oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is recommended as a prevention choice for people at substantial risk of HIV infection as part of combination prevention approaches. The first of these recommendations is based on evidence from clinical trials and observational studies released since 2013 showing that earlier use of ART results in better clinical outcomes for people living with HIV compared with delayed treatment. The second recommendation is based on clinical trial results confirming the efficacy of the ARV drug tenofovir for use as PrEP to prevent people from acquiring HIV in a wide variety of settings and populations. The recommendations in this guideline will form part of the revised consolidated guidelines on the use of ARV drugs for treating and preventing HIV infection to be published by WHO in 2016.
