Caption: Cell infected with HIV. Electronic image of HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) particles (red) budding from the membrane of a host cell. HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) attacks T-lymphocytes (specialised white blood cells), which are crucial in the body's immune system. It enters the cell and makes many copies of itself, which then destroy the cell as they emerge through its membrane. This severely weakens the immune system, causing AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).
