This paper summarizes the results of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) intervention in Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) treatment from the immune reconstruction. The role of TCM in intervening in AIDS immune reconstruction, improving the symptoms of HIV/AIDS patients, improving the quality of life of patients, and alleviating the suffering of patients were thoroughly analyzed. Specifically, this paper uses a retrospective analysis method to divide 187 AIDS patients into a simple western medicine group and a combined Chinese and western medicine group according to whether the treatment plan is combined with TCM. The medical records of the patients in the included group were classified and analyzed based on the follow-up points before treatment, 12, 24, and 36 months after treatment, to observe the change in total symptom score, CD4+ lymphocyte count, and the Karnofsky score.
The results demonstrate that the total symptom scores in the western medicine group after treatment were lower than those before treatment, and the decrease in the 12th and 24th months was statistically significant compared with that before treatment (P < 0.05), while the decrease in the 36th month was lower than that before treatment with no statistical significance (P > 0.05). Compared with those before treatment, the total symptom scores in the combined group were significantly lower at each follow-up point (P value < 0.05), and the decrease at the 24th and 36th months was more significant than that in the western medicine group at the same period (P < 0.05). In addition, the CD4+ counts at each follow-up point in the two groups were significantly increased compared with those before treatment (P < 0.05), and the increase in the combined group at the 36th month was significantly more significant than that in the western medicine group at the same period (P < 0.05). Moreover, the Karnofsky score of the western medicine group decreased compared with those before treatment except for the 12th month, and there was no significant difference at each time point (P > 0.05). On the other hand, the scores for the combined group increased after treatment compared with before treatment. The differences were statistically significant (P < 0.05) except for the 12th month, and the difference presented in the 24th and 36th months, contrasting with the western medicine group at the same period, were significant Statistically significant (P < 0.05).
We concluded that: 1. Western medicine treatment and combined treatment of traditional Chinese and Western medicine can improve the symptoms score of patients, promote the growth of CD4+ lymphocytes, and mediate immune reconstruction. The long-term curative effect of combining traditional Chinese and western medicine is more effective, durable and stable. 2. Combined use of traditional Chinese and Western medicine effectively relieves patients’ pain and improves their quality of life. 3. Long-term application of traditional Chinese medicine combined with HARRT has an effectively synergistic effect and promotes the treatment of AIDS patients.
