Result: Administration of Simunox to the treated group was not significantly increase CD4+ T cells count. The result of paired T-test showed p=0,144. In controlled group, mean CD4+ T cells count were decreased, but the difference between pre and post administration in treated and controlled group did not show any significancy (p=0,262).
