Study Description
Brief Summary:

The objective of this Phase III, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in patients with immunologic deficiency is to determine the effect of Isoprinosine in producing an immuno-restorative response within the study observation period (including the 2-month period following cessation of the 28 days of treatment), measured by one or more of the following immunological parameters:

  • Increase in natural killer (NK) cell activity.
  • Increase in total T-cells (OKT-11).
  • Increases in absolute number and percentage of T-helper cells (OKT-4).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Lymphatic Disease HIV Infections Drug: Inosine pranobex
