    AIDS is diagnosed separately from HIV. Terminology. The window period is the time from infection until a test can detect any change. The average window period with HIV-1 antibody tests is 25 days for subtype B. Antigen testing cuts the window period to approximately 16 days and nucleic acid testing (NAT) further reduces this period to 12 days. Purpose: detect the presence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

ine. Health Organization. Opportunistic infections (OIs) are infections that occur more frequently and are more severe in people with weakened immune systems, including people with HIV.

OIs are less common now than they were in the early days of HIV because better treatments reduce the amount of HIV in a person’s body and keep a person’s immune system stronger. Get this from a library. Contemporary diagnosis and management of HIV/AIDS infections.

If fitness to work is impaired by HIV-related illness, reasonable alternative working arrangements should be made. The management of HIV/AIDS normally includes the use of multiple antiretroviral drugs in an attempt to control HIV infection.

There are several classes of antiretroviral agents that act on different stages of the HIV life-cycle. The use of multiple drugs that act on different viral targets is known as highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). HIV attacks CD4 cells, which find and destroy bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other germs.

Without enough CD4 cells to fight them off, infections can lead to illnesses, cancers, and brain and nerve. The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is considered to be one of the most devastating infectious diseases to have emerged in the recent history. it is a chronic condition characterized by progressive immunodeficiency, a long clinical latency period and opportunistic infections (1) HIV is the cause of the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).

DEFINITION  Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) can be defined as presence of antibodies to HIV and opportunistic infections.

EPIDEMIOLOGY  WHO reported that one million children were infected with HIV by the end of and estimated that 10 million children will be born infected by the year.
