In December 2011, the World Health Organization released a report estimating the number of worldwide HIV/AIDS cases at 30 million. HIV/AIDS is an antiretroviral disease that affects the immune system by destroying cells vital to the body's immune response. This is accomplished by two general mechanisms: killing host cells, and killing uninfected neighboring cells. Both mechanisms are based on manipulation of the genetic information contained within ribonucleic acid (RNA) and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of a type of immune cell called the CD4 cell.
