Mar 2, 2001

Is it possible that someone with T cells of 80 and viral load 3552 in the month of October 2000 become undetectable in the blood in the month of November while on combivir and sustiva medication? (This patient was sick of gastric and went to the hospital, the doctor told the patient that the white blood count was too low and he ran a test for HIV and both test were positive. This patient was so healthy and never been sick apart from the gastric.) -Is someone with T cell of 80 an HIV or AIDS patient? -How long does it take someone with CD4 count of 80 for the virus to become undetectable while on two combination of medication (combirva & sustiva)?

Response from Dr. Dezube
