Response from Dr. Holodniy

A normal CD4 count is between 500 and 1500. If those numbers are associated with HIV infection, that means that some damage has occurred to the immune system as a result of HIV destroying CD4 cells. The CD8 count increases in response to HIV infection because they are the major type of cell that fights the infection. CD3 cells include CD4 and CD8 cells. CD45 cells are a subpopulation of white blood cells, some of which can be lymphocytes like CD4 cells, that are involve in the immune response to infections.
