| Response from Dr. Holodniy
CD4 cells are a type of immune cell that is critical in preventing and controlling many kinds of infections. HIV infection preferentially infects CD4 cells and reduces their number, thereby putting a person at risk for developing opportunistic infections. A normal CD4 count is between 500 and 1500.
