Caption: Colour enhanced transmission electron micrograph of a shadowed replica of HIV particles. The virus infects T-4 white blood cells, making them produce more virus particles. These erupt from the cell and infect other cells. The process kills the white blood cells. As T-4 cells are important in the immune system, the immune response is severely damaged in AIDS. This makes patients vulnerable to normally harmless diseases. Magnification 10,000x @ 5x7(inches).
