is there a such thing as naming the stages of AIDS?

Response from Dr. Conway

In general terms, we speak of people who are completely asymptomatic, those who have full-blown AIDS (with an illness according to the list published by the American CDC), and all of those in between. This is a useful clinical classification, but it must always be interpreted in the context of the CD4 count, which is a more accurate measure of the immune system and a predictor of the risk of disease progression over time.
