Most notably, immune cells called CD4+T cells are disabled and killed during the typical course of infection. These cells, also known as T-Helper cells, play a role in the immune response, signaling other cells in the immune system to perform their special functions. Loss of these cells in people with HIV is an extremely powerful predictor of the development of AIDS.
