Is it possible or not?

My husband CD4 result reads 680. Does it mean he can't transmit HIV to me?
Response from Dr. Frascino
No, not necessarily.
If your husband is HIV-positive, he could potentially transmit the virus no matter what his CD4 count is. The CD4 count measures a specific component of the immune system, but does not specifically indicate whether someone is HIV-positive or not.
