hello doctor, my query is that clinical relevance for a patient is HIV positive CD4 counts, when these values ââare out of range of danger (under 200 cells). subject 1 with values ââsuch as CD4 1000 (35%), subject 2 with CD4 values ââ500 (35%). could say that the subject number 1 will have less disease?, or after a certain number no greater difference between one and another man ...? is correct to think that the subject number 1 will have a better old age because the elderly have a lower number of CD4?

It is difficult to predict who might have a better outcome, as the outcome is dependent on the underlying immune system and the virus strain that each person has.
