Initial T Cell Count and Viral Load

Nov 17, 2007

Is there a correlation between the number of T Cells a person has at begining of HIV infection and the value of the viral load once it stabilizes? With more T Cells to infect at the start might that mean higher viral load?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

As far as I'm aware, there's no relationship between initial CD4 count and viral load.
