I am a 4th year Zoology student interested in learning more about AIDS
and other STD's.
The type of information I'm looking for is:
- cause (viral or bacterial)
- specific host cells, areas of infection
- resulting conditions, symptoms, treatments available
- means of detection
- other means of transmission besides sexual.
- effective means of prevention (condom use)
- Anything else you know about the disease!
I would also accept references which contain the information I seek.
I'd also like some feedback from people who have read the book or seen
the movie "And
the Band Played On".
Please send me the infomation by email if possible, because I may forget
to save a post to the newsgroup after I've read it.
Thank You. Any information sent is greatly appreciated.
