Does HPV Effect Labs?

Oct 27, 2006

I was diagnosed 6 months ago-1st labs CD4 600 VL 10,600, 3 months later CD4 800 VL 9,500. I'm due for my next set but noticed what appear to be anal warts (I've had them before). Will this outbreak influence my labs, the way other viral infections might? At my lab #'s, is this an indication of a weakening immune system?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It has not really been studied, but unlikely given that it is a local infection.

TB and PCP
drug-protease mechanism
