Summary

Immunity 1 (Fuzheng 1) is composed of herbs which have tonic and detoxific function. The long-term clinical application has proved the safety and effect. It can improve the symptoms and signs in AIDS patients with the effective rate of 70% and can significantly improve the quality of life. It can also improve and stabilize immune function and inhibit viral replication. The basis study have shown that Immunity 1 (Fuzheng 1) can inhibit viral replication from multi-target, multi-link, enhance immune function, increase the secretion of IL-2, IFN-γ, participate in immune regulation effect, enhance NK cell activity, promote CD3+CD4+T cell proliferation and increase macrophage phagocytes capacity.

Description

- Meng Kun found that Joint application of Chuankezhi can enhance the number of CD4 cells and reduce side-effects of HAART compared with HAART alone. in order to verify the long-term efficacy of combination therapy, they carried out an clinical observations of three cases of patients who received combination therapy for over a period of 3 years, through the observation of three cases of patients, they found that CD3+CD4+T lymphocyte count were significantly increased and HIV-RNA viral load were below 50copies for long-term, and without the occurrence of drug resistance. And the patient's symptoms and signs have also been significantly improved.

- Duan Cheng Yu analyses 334 cases of AIDS patients' clinical symptoms, signs and Karnofsky score, and CD3+CD4+ T lymphocyte count before and after treatment. The patients all take "kang ai bao sheng" capsules for 3 months. The results showed that 334 cases of patients receiving traditional Chinese and western medicine treatment shows improvement in symptoms and signs, increase in CD3+CD4+ T lymphocyte count. They proposed that combination of traditional Chinese and western medicine can improve symptoms, enhance immunity function and improve the quality of life of AIDS patients.

- In order to observe the effect of combination of TCM and HAART on HIV/AIDS patients, ZHANG Ai-min divided 63 cases of AIDS into 3 groups. 20 cases received TCM treatment and 22 cases received combination of TCM and HAART, 21 cases received western medicine. The patients' symptoms, signs, Karnofsky score points, CD3+CD4+T lymphocyte counts and HIV-RNA viral load were recorded and compare the difference between the 3 groups. The results showed that combination treatment can more effectively improve the immune function of HIV/AIDS patients, reduce HIV-RNA viral load, and improve the patients' symptoms, signs and the quality of life.

- Immunity 1 (Fuzheng 1) is composed of herbs which have tonic and detoxific function. The long-term clinical application has proved the safety and effect. It can improve the symptoms and signs in AIDS patients with the effective rate of 70% and can significantly improve the quality of life. It can also improve and stabilize immune function and inhibit viral replication. The basis study have shown that Immunity 1 (Fuzheng 1) can inhibit viral replication from multi-target, multi-link, enhance immune function, increase the secretion of IL-2, IFN-γ, participate in immune regulation effect, enhance NK cell activity, promote CD3+CD4+T cell proliferation and increase macrophage phagocytes capacity.

- Through the clinical trials, we are going to evaluate the efficacy and safety of combination of TCM and HAART on immune reconstitution of HIV/AIDS patients.

Acquired defect of cellular immunity that occurs in cats infected with feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and in some cats infected with feline leukemia virus (FeLV).

A species of LENTIVIRUS, subgenus feline lentiviruses (LENTIVIRUSES, FELINE) isolated from cats with a chronic wasting syndrome, presumed to be immune deficiency. There are 3 strains: Petaluma (FIP-P), Oma (FIP-O) and Puma lentivirus (PLV). There is no antigenic relationship between FIV and HIV, nor does FIV grow in human T-cells.

A disorder of cognition characterized by the tetrad of finger agnosia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and right-left disorientation. The syndrome may be developmental or acquired. Acquired Gerstmann syndrome is associated with lesions in the dominant (usually left) PARIETAL LOBE which involve the angular gyrus or subjacent white matter. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p457)

An acquired defect of cellular immunity associated with infection by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), a CD4-positive T-lymphocyte count under 200 cells/microliter or less than 14% of total lymphocytes, and increased susceptibility to opportunistic infections and malignant neoplasms. Clinical manifestations also include emaciation (wasting) and dementia. These elements reflect criteria for AIDS as defined by the CDC in 1993.
