Immunologic Nonresponders

Nov 27, 2012

What's the actual definition and prognosis for an "Immunological Nonresponder"?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

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.
