And the AIDS virus in the first place is beginning to surrender their positions because of the impact of T-lymphocytes. Moreover, even cure colds from primitive impossible without these cells, to uphold the immune system.

During clinical trials found that the introduction of doses of growth hormone helps restore AIDS-infected immune system through an increase in blood T-lymphocytes. However, without the side effects were unable to do - growth hormone causes accelerated bone lengthening patients, because of what may turns of those ordinary people with average growth into giants. And the risk of such a metamorphosis is present in every second patient.
