What does CD19 count exactly mean ?
Jun 18, 2006
I checked your forum but couldn't found the answer about my question.
My CD4/CD8 lymps are almost good for years. But CD19 lymps are not stable and tend to decrease regularly. I've asked my doctors and they couldn't answer properly, exactly say that "not important, importance is your CD4/CD8". But according to others (saw someone on TV) it may cause bronchitis and other damages about lung etc..
My last infos are below. But I wonder what decreasing cd19 sount means. Is it dangerous and why it's happened ? What should I do ?
Last lab results:
WBC 5,7 Lymp %34,6 CD4 %27 CD8 %42 CD19 %6 (this is the max. count I've ever had)
Response from Dr. Holodniy
CD19 cells are B lymphocytes, responsible for making antibodies.
