Human immunodeficiency virus infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is a spectrum of conditions caused by infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Following initial infection, a person may not notice any symptoms or may experience a brief period of influenza-like illness. Typically, this is followed by a prolonged period with no symptoms. As the infection progresses, it interferes more with the immune system, increasing the risk of developing common infections such as tuberculosis, as well as other opportunistic infections, and tumors that rarely affect people who have uncompromised immune systems. These late symptoms of infection are referred to as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). This stage is often also associated with unintended weight loss.
The Kiev Museum of Wax Figures included a Sharon Stone wax figure. It is modeled after the scene in Basic Instinct in which she uncrosses her legs and exposes her genitalia during a police interrogation. Yevhen and Oleksy Sazhyn, the father and son running the museum, reported that the design process for the figure took eight months. They found sculptures based on women were more difficult to plan than those on men. For the creation of the Sharon Stone figure, they said: "capturing her legs in just the right position was tricky business".
