Is it possible or not?

Jan 24, 2004

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.
