cd4 count
Dec 21, 2012

how long can a hiv+ person live with a 255cd4 count without treatment?

Response from Dr. Henry

Survival with HIV infection in absence of treatment and CD4 count of 255 is widely variable and from HIV standpoint can range for < 1 yaer to many, many years depending on many individual factors with most patients still living for years. The better question is how long can a person with HIV infection and a CD4 count of 255 live with treatment. There the answer is very positive--I would expect from HIV standpong a several typically measured in decades and as an added bonus protecting good health and decreasing risk to transmit to other persons.
