to a destruction or a functional failure of the T4-lymphocytes, also called

'helper cells`, which play a regulatory role in the production of antibodies in

the immune system.'

In the course of the illness, the number of functional T4-

cells is reduced greatly so that new anti-bodies cannot be produced and the

defenceless patient remains exposed to a range of infections that under other
