Re:high T-Suppressor cells
Jul 29, 2009

dr keith when you said that high t_suppressor cells might be another immune function disturbance, does this means its bad? does this usually happen or have u had any patiuents with this type? so whats the best thing to do? thanks.

Response from Dr. Henry

The clinical relevance of a higher CD8 cell count is unclear to me. There is no specific therapy/intervention for that. Effective ART will often help restore balance between helper and suppressor cells. KH

High T-Suppressor cells
Side effects from ATRIPLA or not??
