Long Term non-progressor

Nov 29, 1999

I have had an undetectable viral load at 20 copies for two years and my CD4's are as follows: 1050, 590, 880, 1050,1300, and 1030. Do you think I may be a LTNP based on the history?? Also, in view of the rebound in CD4's does that indicate a strong immune response to the virus?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You do not indicate how long you have known you are antibody positive, or how long you have been infected. But judging from those numbers, you may be a nonprogressor. The "long-term" may not be known yet. MH
