cd8 cells

Feb 24, 2013

Is there anything wrong if my cd8 cells are high while my cd4 count is over 1700. Or is there anything to be worried about? can you explain why??

Response from Dr. Holodniy

With HIV infection you will see the CD8 count increase as response to the infection. CD8 cells are the major cell involved with control of HIV infection.

Blood test from undetectable to detectable with CD4 increase
