normal cd8 range

Nov 2, 2008

Dr is there a range for "normal" cd8 abs count in healthy people vs. a range of abs cd8s in hiv infected people ? I read that the latter is much higher, but what are the abs count ranges in terms of numbers for the two categories ( healthy vs hiv.aids ) thanks

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The normal range for CD8 cells is about 300-1000. The range in HIV infection is much broader and can go higher than 3000 or more.
