CD4 with out hiv
Nov 1, 2010

Dear Dr, A short question. Can a normal person have a CD4 count of 730 with out being infected. Is this cd 4 count of for a general person with the age of 33.

Response from Dr. McGowan

A CD4 count of 730 can be seen in individuals without HIV infection but can also be observed in inividuals living with HIV infection. The normal range of CD4+ T-cells is very broad. Measuring a CD4 count should not be used as a substitute for an HIV test. Thanks
