Abstract

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is the hallmark of profound immune dysfunction that allows opportunistic infections in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients. HIV infection is estimated to affect 15 million people worldwide and continues to spread at an unabated pace. Since over 90% of new cases of HIV infection occur in developing countries, social behaviors and nutritional status became major issues to consider in issues related to progression of the infection to AIDS. 1.
