questions about resistance test
Oct 5, 2000

Hi Dr:

Will recent x-ray done have any impact on resistance test result? If there is some inflammation in the body, the cd4 and cd8 will go up together or only cd8 becomes higher than the cd4? or both conditions could happen? Thanx a lot!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Xrays will not affect resistance tests. Either cell type can go up.
