What's the actual definition and prognosis for an "Immunological Nonresponder"?
| Response from Dr. Young

There are a variety of definitions for immunological non-responder, but they generally are about the inability achieve a normal CD4 T-cell count despite prolonged HIV viral suppression.
A very nice review article from HIVInSite gives a lot of details of the current state of research.
