How does HIV attack and spread?
How do AIDS attack and spread? the 5 ways it attacks the cells is: 1. HIV attaches to the surface. 2. Virus makes a copy of its genetic material. 3. Virus core enters cell and goes to the nucleus. 4. New virus assembles at cell suface. 5. New virus breaks away from the host cell. IT IS SPREADED BY 3 WAYS: 1. Sexual intercourse. 2. Sharing needles. 3. Mother to baby.

Because the level of HIV virus present in saliva is generally insufficient to pass on the virus to a non-infected person.
No. HIV infection is passed through contact with an infected person's blood, semen, vaginal fluid or breast milk.
By sharing food with the affected person. * drinking from the same glass * kissing * masturbation * sleeping in the same bed * being bitten by the same mosquito …* being bitten by the same dog * breathing the same air * using the same toothbrush * using the same toothpick * living in the same house * traveling in the same car * wearing the same clothes * sharing toothpaste * going to the same school * playing in the same team * living in the same street * swimming in the same pool * showering together * anal sex using a condom * vaginal sex using a condom * oral sex if you have no cuts or raw bleeding in your gums
No, mosquitoes drink and consume the blood. They don't inject it into a new person. No one has ever gotten HIV from a mosquito. The short answer is that you cannot get HIV fro…m a mosquito bite. The mosquito itself cannot be infected with the human immunodeficiency virus. It cannot spread the virus from one human to another. HIV can be ingested by a mosquito, but it can't infect the mosquito and replicate in it, so the mosquito can't spread HIV. Mosquitoes lack the ability to transmit the HIV virus. Mosquito-HIV transmission has become the ultimate QTND (question that never dies!). See below for a small sampling of what's in the archives. Your HIV risk from smashing a blood-filled mosquito on your leg is exactly zero! There is a technical scientific explanation why this is the case, but it's rather tedious. It involves what happens to HIV once it leaves the human host and enters the mosquito. In addition, there would not be enough HIV to cause an infection via this route. Please note we've been monitoring HIV for over 27 years. This question has been studied from every possible angle. Mosquitoes don't transmit HIV. That is not enough blood to give you HIV. There must be a significant amount for you to get infected and a mosquito cannot give you HIV/AIDS. Besides, the blood doesn't go directly into your bloodstream because the blood from the mosquito might be going into your muscle, fatty layer, etc. It just doesn't work with something as small as a mosquito. HIV does not survive long enough to be transmitted from person to person by a mosquito bite. The disease does not work like that. AIDS attacks cells as a retrovirus. So, it basically works backwards. That and the mosquito has enzymes that break down certain viruses and bacteria. Also, usually after one feast, the mosquito is at its fill. The blood would need to be injected into your body, which is not what happens during a mosquito bite.
No. HIV is spread through bodily fluids.
When someone with aids was unprotected sex, shares needles or blood transfusion.Not using a condom when having sex with a person who has HIV.All unprotected sex with someone… who has HIV contains some risk. However: Unprotected anal sex is riskier than unprotected vaginal sex.Among men who have sex with other men, unprotected receptive anal sex is riskier than unprotected insertive anal sex.
HIV cannot spread through skin unless there are cuts or open wounds or sores. HIV can spread through mucous membranes which is the soft, often moist tissue in some organs, f…or example the tissue that layers the inside of the vagina, the head o f mans penis or the inner foreskin or an uncircumcised man.
It is spread via bodily fluids, so if the cut was bleeding and somebody else treated the cut (without taking precautionary measures, such as plastic gloves), they may contract… HIV.
yes it is possible to contract HIV in this manner. You'll need to be having sex with a HIV infected partner and you need a open pathway for their fluids to enter into your bod…y, blood stream. A open sore in the mouth, rotting teeth, even gingivitis can be these pathways.
HIV attacks and destroys the immune system, specifically the white blood cells that fight infection.
Answer Regardless of whether you ejaculate inside or outside of your partner, they have still been exposed to your body fluids by way of seminal fluid (AKA: Pre-c…um), which contains HIV. Seminal fluid is the body's natural production of lubrication in preparation of a sexual event. Seminal fluid may not contain as much concentration as in semen, but it is still exposure and potentially infective due to the exposure of bodily fluids between two people.
After sexual infection, HIV usually remains localised in lymph nodes close to the infection site, where it uses a type of immune cell called a CD4 cell to reproduce. After abo…ut two weeks, HIV then bursts out form these enlarged lymph nodes and spread widely to all parts o the body establishing a systemic (throughout the body) infection. This is when flu-like symptoms often occur. The body then controls HIV for most people, often over many years (commonly 2-10 years), but slowly the immune system becomes damaged. The CD4 cells are an important part of your immune system, but the virus gradually reduces them until the body is too weak to fight infections. HIV treatment reverses this damage allowing CD4 cells to increase again. For people able to access treatment, HIV is now a manageable infection rather than a fatal illness.
How can you get HIV? You can get HIV from your mom or dad. When your mom and dad has sex, one of then has HIV. If your dad has HIV and he did sex with your mom and… than your mom get it. Then your mom has a baby and then your moms baby will get it. When she has the baby the baby will have it when he grow up. Then your mom and dad will die. Then the baby grow up he will not live long he will die when it comes time. How can HIV not be spread? The only thing is to be heath is to not have sex with no one or you could get HIV. You can't get HIV from kiss. DON'T HAVE SEX WITH NO ONE.
In Skin Care
it will if you make a wound or an opening to the body. The virus is very unstable and dies quite quickly if not protected in some sort of medium. so there may be a chance if… you are sharing a blade that cuts both users simultaneously. HIV can survive in dry blood and mucous ( nasal discharge) upto 48 hours. HIV is also present in sweat and saliva of a person and will cause infection if it gets into blood. Though medical research shows that percentage virus in saliva and sweat is low to cause infection, there are 15 percent of the cases whose cause if unknown. So the answer would be YES.
Yes Now this means they must have the HIV virus in their body rather than just have to have a positive HIV test (since sometimes they're wrong)
HIV can be spread via vaginal, oral, or anal sex. It can be spread between heterosexual couples and homosexual couples. It can also be spread if someone shares an infected… needle (usually for drugs) with another person.
