Understanding Immune Activation and Pathogenesis of HIV Infection at Target Meeting


People have different apprehensions and ideas about HIV/AIDS. Misconceptions about HIV and AIDS cause fear and panic among those exposed to the virus and those who are at high-risk. You can clear your doubts about the Human Immunodeficiency Virus and the dangers associated with it by attending the Target Meeting scheduled as an online event on March 12, 2011.

Bellaire, TX, March 03, 2011 --(PR.com)-- There are many stigmas and fears associated with AIDS and HIV prevailing in society in the current times. Several misconceptions have unnecessarily clouded people’s minds and have led to irrational thinking. Although the virus, as well as the syndrome, is quite serious and life-threatening, modern-day medicine has come a long way to neutralize some of these misconceptions. Understanding the disease, the disease causing viruses, and other details can make life easy and help eradicate myths about the disease. All this will be possible at the target meeting that aims at Understanding the Immune activation and pathogenesis of HIV infection scheduled to be held on March 12, 2011. Because this meeting will be held online, anyone interested in attending the meeting can join directly from their office, home, or anywhere that has an internet connection. Target Meeting is also calling for sponsors who would like to take initiative and support this great cause.

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), which is a member of the retrovirus family, causes AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome.) The virus causes the immune system to fail, which further leads to life-threatening opportunistic infections. As a matter of fact, AIDS killed more than 25 million people between 1981 to 2006. Statistics also reveal that by 2009, more than 33.3 million people worldwide were infected with HIV. When you add these numbers together, you will find that HIV infects about 0.6% of the world's total population. According to the World Health Organization, HIV infection in humans is growing into a pandemic.
