Both a and b-hiv, which belongs to the subtype retrovirus mainly infects two types of cells of the immune system.the first is the cd4 cells t4 lymphocytes which have the cd4 glycoprotein attached to its surface .t- lymphocytes is a type of wbc derived from the thymus gland.when infected, the absolute count of these cells falls from the normal level (500 and 1500 per cc) to below 200 per cubic millimeter of blood .macrophages are wbcs found in tissues, which help to remove pathogens by engulfing them.
