Caption: Transmission electron micrograph (pink tint) of the virus causing AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). Virus particles (designated HIV - Human Immunodeficiency Virus) are visible budding from an H9 cell, a special cancer cell line for culturing the virus. HIV destroys T- lymphocytes, key cells in the body's immune response to infections. A disabled defence system is vulnerable to "opportunistic" infections, notably a normally rare form of pneumonia & Kaposi's sarcoma, a type of skin cancer. The virus is transmitted sexually & through contaminated blood. Magnification: X 35000 (35mm).
