GOAL: To assess the effect of zinc supplementation in the natural history of HIV, emphasizing on the immunological recovery of patients in a health care provider program in Medellín in 2012. METHODS: A prospective, randomized, double-blind, controlled clinical trial will be conducted. The selected group will consist of male and female patients over 18 years of age, who comply with the inclusion criteria, with digital clinical history, in an HIV/AIDS program of a health care provider in Medellín. They will receive zinc supplements for 3 months. A comparison will be made between the immunological recovery among those patients taking the zinc supplement and those who are not. The CD4 lymphocytes value will be taken as an independent variable.
