Hi, I was just wondering how useful Beta2-microglobulin is as a marker for disease progression? What are normal values? Does HIV-infection in itself cause elevated levels, or do levels increase only when AIDS is approaching?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
A non specific marker of inflammation and therefore not useful.
