where HIV (AIDS) viruses are there ?
Asked by | 8th Aug, 2009, 10:22: PM
Like all viruses, HIV cannot grow or reproduce on its own. In order to make new copies of itself it must infect the cells of a living organism.
HIV can only replicate (make new copies of itself) inside human cells. Infection with HIV occurs by the transfer of blood, semen, vaginal fluid, pre-ejaculate, or breast milk. Within these bodily fluids, HIV is present as both free virus particles and virus within infected immune cells.
