tcell count

Nov 30, 2008

When a tcell count is done do they measure all white blood cells or just the healthy ones. Also what is the half-life of a P24 antigen?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

They measure all the t cells, whether they are HIV infected or not. The half life of p24 antigen is on the order of days to weeks, given that it is a protein.
