Antiretroviral therapy has played an important role in improving the quality of life and extending the life span of HIV positive patients. In the present study 17 naive HIV positive patients out of a total of 23 positive cases from local population who had absolute CD4+ counts below 300 were given ARV therapy and followed for 1 year. The patients showed an overall improvement in CD4+T lymphocyte counts at one year survival. The values of CD3+ & CD8+ T lymphocytes also changed as expected.
