Mohamed Yousfi specifies that “there are only a few patients excluded from this therapeutic protocol, like patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases and those who have not tolerated this treatment. The latter were put on antivirals, used in the treatment of HIV infections and which have given very satisfactory results ”.
