Instgra 50 Mg
Instgra 50 Mg are used to treat Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection, in combination with other HIV medications, in adults and children over 12 years of age and weighing 40 kg or more. HIV impairs the immune system by attacking specific immune cells called CD4+ cells, a type of white blood cell involved in fighting infection, which can lead to opportunistic life-threatening infection (infections that would not normally be harmful). If too many CD4+ cells are destroyed this can result in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Instgra 50 Mg help prevent or slow down the ability of HIV to replicate, which reduces the viral load by keeping the amount virus down to a low level and this results in an increase in CD4 cell numbers, so that the immune system can recover reducing the risk of disease progression.
