Statistical analysis that considered antiretroviral exposure, CD4 and CD8 counts
, and a melange of classic risk factors determined that a current viral load above 50 copies/mL (versus below) independently raised the odds of a new MI 51% (adjusted odds ratio 1.
CD4 and CD8 counts
were estimated byusing the Dynabeads T4 -T8 Quantification Protocol (Dynal Biotech ASA, Oslo, Norway) described by the manufacturer.
To screen for T-cell disorders, get an absolute lymphocyte count plus a CD4 and CD8 count
1] NAC did not change viral load, CD4 count, CD8 count

The mean enrollment CD8 count

Taking daily vitamins and minerals with or without arginine and omega-3 fatty acids did not improve CD4 count, CD8 count
, or viral load in a double-blind trial of 55 Swiss patients.
There was a significant negative correlation between MIP1 [alpha] with CD4 count and CD4:CD8 ratio and MIP1 [beta] with CD4 count and CD8 count
Whole blood, serum or plasma were collected from all subjects and eight markers were measured: Hemoglobin and platelets measured by cell counter (sysmex, KX21- Japan); Homocysteine measured by auto-analyzer (Alcion-300, Abott-USA), Turbidometric method; Anticardiolipin and Antiphospholipid antibodies (IgG, IgM) measured by ELISA method and lymphocyte CD4, CD8 counts
were done by a single platform flow cytometric method.
A pilot study on observations on CD4 & CD8 counts
in healthy HIV seronegative individuals.
The endless stream of numbers--CD4 and CD8 counts
, ratios, white and red blood cell counts, liver enzymes--is enough to leave anyone frustrated and confused.
