This research work is important for the cure/control of HIV infection. The study is intended to confirm the efficacy of "Kallunk Oxide (Immunotherapy)" molecules in the Treatment of HIV infection. The study will investigate the T- Lymphocytes (immune) response to HIV in order to boost the body's natural immune ability against infection. The basic study is directly inhibit a protein's increased functions, not only in the CD4+T cell but also CD3+ and CD8+ T cells and the CD45+. cells.

The 'Yogaprabhava', the drug's effectiveness, and progressive immunity with diet and lifestyle can be more easily studied.
