My platelets are hovering in the 17-25 range, viral load is 12,000 and t-cells at 580-620. My t-cells are to high for anti-virals and prednisone has no effect on increasing platelet counts. Are there any other options on increasing platelets?

Two other possibilities include a trial of infusions of gamma globulin or splenectomy (removal of the spleen).
