Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)

In this video, we look at the Human Immunodeficiency Virus or HIV. First we explore the structure of HIV and see how it is an example of an RNA virus. Next we explore how HIV replicates and how this leads to the symptoms of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). Finally, we look at why we cannot use antibiotics to treat viral diseases such as HIV.
