Abstract

HIV is an enveloped RNA retrovirus that can lead to the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), a condition characterized by the depletion of T-lymphocyte (CD4+) cells, leading to life-threatening opportunistic infections. Since it was first recognized in 1981, it has taken a toll of more than 25 million deaths.
