my friend got his new labresults. his virusload is 300, CD4 is 312. last time he had a virusload that was not detectable and a CD4 of 450. can this be just a blip or does he has to be worried that the treatment he is on since 3 years, fails? his doctor wants to see him again in 2 weeks time to chek VL and CD4 again.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I agree with his doctor about seeing him again soon to recheck the numbers. It is most likely a blip.

hcv rna qual or quan
CD4 felt
