|Confued about HIV+ and HIV- immune systems
Jun 13, 2006
My understanding is that there is a typically a 50-75 CD4 count decline per year in a HIV+ positive person's immune system and a 3% (?) fall. I also understand that the CD4/CD8 ratio will invest.
My questions are what is a typical immune system in healthy HIV- person. Specifically,
1. Does it remain more or less constant or will it fluctuate over time?
2. If the latter what is a normal (daily) fluctuation? ation?
