4 Reasons Some People Can Never Get Infected With HIV/AIDS

HIV/AIDS attacks the body by attaching itself to a target cell, then injecting genetic materials which force the cells to make duplicates of the virus.
There is a small population of people that are resistant to HIV/AIDS despite repeated exposure to the virus.

4 reasons why some people cannot get infected with HIV/AIDS.

1. High Cytokines: 

Cytokines are proteins that regulate the duration and intensity of immune response.
Studies have shown that people who are resistant to HIV/AIDS have high Cytokines which help in reducing viral entry into host cells and decreases the replication of the R5 strain of HIV.

2. Strong immune system: 

Some people’s immune systems are strong enough to destroy the virus.

3. Mutation: 

A genetic mutation known as CCR5-delta 32 hampers HIV’s ability to infiltrate immune cells.
A few individuals carry this mutation in their CCR5 gene.

4. High cytotoxic T-lymphocytes: 

Cytotoxic T-lymphocytes protect the body against HIV when there is consistent exposure to the virus.
