About

The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a single-stranded RNA virus which reproduces in human CD4-positive cells, which are primarily T-helper lymphocytes and macrophages. HIV is the causative pathogen of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS).

Questions should be about the biology of HIV, not seeking medical advice on the health aspects of HIV. Health questions are strictly off topic.
