Re : Low CD4 Absolute but High CD4

Sep 11, 2001

Thanks for the answer. My total WBC was 6000 and total lymphocyte was 2256 but I didn't go for VL count since I couldn't afford for it. Anyway I had it done recently and will let you know soon. Coulod you please tell me if the OIs are related to CD4 regardless of V/Load.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, development of OIs are a function of the degree of immune suppression and CD4 counts are a direct reflection of that.

PCR uncertainty
Can both virus and antibody be undetectable?
