B lymphocytes
Oct 22, 2003

Is there a B cell count renage needed for development of antibodies? If B cell count is at lower end of range, does this indicate that detectable level of antibodies for HIV or Hep C would be longer? thanks.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Antibodies are made by B cells, however the number of B cells has nothing to do with time to seroconversion! DTD

Are you still accepting patients? How do i make an appointment?
