is cd8 affeted???

Aug 25, 2002

When someone experiences detectable virus while on therapy,very low that could qualify as a blip <100, would the cd8 be affected,ie higher or lower if it it true resistance developing vs a true blip?The cd4 is stable.Thank you

Response from Dr. Young

I am not aware of any data that correlates CD8 counts with the nature of blips. One might reasonably expect that with viral activation, that CD8 levels could increase, but I am unaware about differences between true blips and markers of true resistance. BY

Will treatment make my lab result better?
