What are the CD4 levels that indicate full blown AIDS?

Response from Dr. Frascino


I've addressed this many times before in this forum. (Check the archives!) Briefly a CD4 count of 200 or less or a CD4% of 14% or less meets the criteria for an AIDS diagnosis. I should also point out we no longer use the term "full blown AIDS," as there is no such thing as "partially blown AIDS."
