Excellent news! You are responding extremely well both virologically (plasma viral load plummeting from 713,000 to 4,000) and immunologically (CD4 count rising from 47 to 150). You are still at risk for some opportunistic infections, especially PCP. In addition to your Sustiva/Epzicom you should also be on PCP prophylaxis with Bactrim DS.
