Amyleum Nitrosum, Azathioprine, Cocainum Muriaticum and Cyclosporine were primarily used as medicines under trial . Other Homoeopathic medicines were used only during seasonal minor ailments based on presenting signs and symptoms.

Assessment of Outcome :

  • The response to the treatment was assessed at the end of the study and was based on the change in clinical presentation
  • The response to treatment was also assessed by the haematological and immunological  investigations such as CD4/CD8 counts
  • Most of these investigations were conducted at the Council’s HIV Research Lab.

Thanks for this work. Could you clarify which potencies were used of these medicines? At present, the presentation only mentioned specific potencies that were made of these medicine, not which were used in the study.

Also, will this study be published somewhere? Please email me at:
(I have previously written about homeopathy and AIDS in peer-review medical journals).
