In addition, CD4 T-cell
depletion was more pronounced in patients treated with 560 or 980 mg compared to 280 mg and this effect was statistically significant.
The investigators determined that patients with lower baseline RC at the onset of HAART had larger recoveries of CD4 T-cell
numbers following treatment.
START asks whether HIV-infected patients should begin therapy while their CD4 T-cell
counts are still above 500 cells [mm.
CD38 expression on CD8 T cells has a weak association with CD4 T-cell
recovery and is a poor marker of viral replication in HIV-1-infected patients on antiretroviral therapy.
This risk increases with decreasing CD4 T-cell
Stimulation with inactivated influenza (H5N1) virus induced a CD4 T-cell
response (Figure 1, panel C: 1.
Analysis of the data revealed that heterosexual persons and intravenous drug users had a lower risk of AIDS-defining fatal malignancy than did homosexual males, and both types of cancer were related to the patient's latest CD4 T-cell
To determine the vaccinees' response to the vaccine, the researchers looked at the patients' CD4 T-cell
responses using a staining protocol that detects vaccinia-specific T cells by virtue of their ability to produce potent antiviral factors such as interferon and tumor necrosis factor.
A rapid manual method for CD4 T-cell
quantitation for use in developing countries.
An instrument-free point-of-care CD4 T-cell
test using a novel method for rapid and inexpensive cell counting.
Our findings have revealed a completely unexpected mechanism for CD4 T-cell
death during HIV infection" said Warner C.
Upon entering the study, some volunteers were asymptomatic, while others had ARC or AIDS; all showed CD4 T-cell
declines of about one per cubic millimeter of blood every three days despite AZT treatment, Delaney says.
