range of "normal" for T cells

Jun 14, 2003

Is there a reference range for T cells that is based on age? In infected people, we know this terrible virus attacks the T cells. In non-infected people, do the T cell numbers also decline as a result of age? Is T cell reference range for infected and non-infected also somehow related to age? If you can reply, I will be grateful. Thanks...

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The range of cells does not change appreciably. It's the function of cells that does.
