cd8

Mar 11, 2007

What is the trend in cd8 count over time in hiv infected people. Genrally, what is the best case senario.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Usually the CD8 numbers go up after infection. It is very patient specific in terms of the elevation seen. Some people may start at 500 and increase to as much as 2-4,000.
