Abstract

Because of the drastic cut down in the prices of antiretroviral drugs, the antiretroviral therapy has become more affordable in India. 16 HIV-1 infected individuals who were on HAART were followed up for 12 months. The CD4+ T Cell count estimation was done at mean intervals of 6 months and 12 months. Antiretroviral therapy showed good response in 14(87.5%) and deterioration in 2 (12.5%) cases.
