In the following link, studies showed that a rather low dose anabolic steroid used in HIV to stop muscle wasting that can accompany HIV is quite effective at reversing this muscle wasting. What was also interesting was that there were also improvements in immune function, such as a significant increase in cd8 lymphocytes, there was also slight improvement in cd4 cells and a slight decrease in viral load. It seems that this info is not commonly know due to stigma of steroid use and politics, mm sounds familiar. I also wonder if this type of treatment could improve recovery from activity and reduce PEM, improved recovery is one of the reason athletes use these medication, something to think about?? http://books.google.com.au/books?id...olic steroids improve immune function&f=false cheers!!!
