Infected by HIV 1 & HIV 2
Oct 2, 2005

Dear Doc's

Below is my detail report, pls guide me.

Lymphocyte Enumeration study report

% CD3 + / CD45 + (T-Cell) 83.6 Absolute CD3 +Lymphocyte count 2119 % CD3 + / CD 4 (T-Helper Cell) L 11.4 CD 4 + 288 % CD3 + CD8 ( T-Supressor Cells ) H 69.3 Abosulte CD8 + Lymphocyte count H 1757

CD4 /CD8 Ratio L 0.16

Response from Dr. Pierone

The critical elements of this test CD4 count 288, CD4 % 11.4%, CD4/CD8 ratio 0.16. This indicates moderate immunosuppresion and in the range in which one would consider commencing antiretroviral therapy.

Epzicom or Truvada a clear winner?
