HIV in the Blood
The immune system is a network of interacting cells that not only work together to protect the body from unwanted invaders, such as bacteria and various viruses, but work together to distinguish these pathogens from the individual's own healthy cells and tissues. Once the immune system loses this ability, immunodeficiency diseases occur and life-threatening infections start to develop. One such infection includes the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which can progressively develop into the acquired immune deficiency syndrome, or AIDS.
