TWO OTHER DISEASES

HIV

-infects vital cells in the human immune system such as helper T cells (specifically CD4+ T cells), macrophages, and dentritic cells HIV infection leads to low levels of CD4+ T cells through three main mechanisms: First, direct viral killing of infected cells; second, increased rates of apoptosis in infected cells; and third, killing of infected CD4+ T cells by CD8 cydotoxic lymphocytis that recognize infected cells. When CD4+ T cell numbers decline below a critical level, cell meditated immunitu is lost, and the body becomes progressively more susceptible to opportunistic infections

HERPES

-People get herpes by having sex with someone who has the disease. “Having sex” means anal, vaginal, or oral sex. HSV-1 and HSV-2 can be found in and released from the sores that the viruses cause. The viruses can also be released from skin that does not appear to have a sore. Generally, a person can only get HSV-2 infection during sexual contact with someone who has a genital HSV-2 infection. Transmission can occur from an infected partner who does not have a visible sore and may not know that he or she is infected.
