doctor says my cells wont let it progress

May 11, 2013

My brother has a girlfriend that was born with HIV she said that her cells wont let it progress so its not contractible. Is that true? Is there any way it can't be contractible? Want to make sure he takes the right precautions.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

More information about her status would be required to understand the statement. What is her CD4 count, HIV viral load level, is she on HIV treatment or not, etc.

VL / CD4?
