Confusing CD4% Situation
Mar 4, 2007
Dear Mark my absolute CD4 cells are 635 but the CD4% shows only 21.5%. Could this be possible? We have used FACScan Flowcytometer (B.D) with CD3/4/45. Also could you let me know which subset of WBC do you use normally, whether CD4 on Total Lymphocytes including B,NK & T cells OR CD4 on T-Cells?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Yes you can have that kind of CD4 count and percentage together. In general we use CD4 count and percentage, unless the numbers are not consistent and then look at the total white count and lymphocyte count.
