High CD4s, low percentages

Nov 25, 2006

What are the implications of consistently high CD4 T-cells (400 to 600) along with low percentages (15% to 24%)? Do these additional CD4s provide immune protection even though they are not accompanied by a decrease in CD8s? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes they do provide protection, but would do more if the CD4 percent was consistently higher.

LTNP studies?
time to get medical insurance?
