- Articulation of the text
AIDS is the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome caused by one or more specific viruses in the family of human retrovirus. They are of the same family as oncoviruses but in a different subfamily. The virus is HIV. There are two types of viruses. : HiVi and HIVII.
AIDS is a serious disease because it occurs after a long incubation period; a silent epidemic that makes it very difficult to monitor and control, especially because there is no treatment that can heal it.
It is a set of signs and symptoms (syndrome) that emerge due to the impairment of the immune system (immune) that is responsible for defending the body against pathogenic factors. This translates into a significant deficit (impairment) which then exposes the body to all kinds of microbial infections (bacteria, fungi) and multiplication of cancer cells, generating malignant tumors.
