When the body has begun with th antibodies to fight HIV does that mean that you will not get sick as much in general or are they antibodies specifically to fight HIV? I have not been sick in over 5 years.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Antibodies are formed by the body (B cells) against HIV when people become infected. Although they provide some level of controlling infection, CD8 cells are the more important portion of the immune response.
