936016 tn?1332765604 These newly infected HIV positive individuals pose an exceptionally high risk of infecting other sexual partners because they are often unaware of the risks they have taken and unaware of the new HIV infection gaining rapid momentum in their body.

Avatar m tn Because HIV is the causative agent of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), ICL can be referred to as Non-HIV AIDS. As in AIDS patients, Non-HIV AIDS patients exhibit reduced numbers of CD4+ T-lymphocytes, and many Non-HIV AIDS patients have developed the opportunistic infections or otherwise rare cancers associated with AIDS. Non-HIV AIDS patients may comprise perhaps one percent of all AIDS patients.

The answer to the question: HIV can be transmitted from blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk. These fluids must come in contact with a mucous membrane, damaged tissue, or direct injection into the blood stream.
