(24) An early increase in both CD4+ and memory CD4+ cells is noted 4 weeks after starting HAART (an increase of 1.42 times compared to the baseline for the memory CD4 +) and this increase persists through 16 weeks (1.56 times) and up to 48 weeks (1.89 times).
During the first few weeks, after the start of HAART, an increase in memory CD4+ cells type is observed possibly as a result of redistribution from peripheral lymphoid tissue (3).
