CD4 improvement and falling mortality rate
« on: September 09, 2014, 02:20:35 PM »
This is not breaking news, but good to have as part of the ongoing record of things on this forum (apologies, if already posted somewhere).  I think the take-away, at least for me who had a very low CD4 of 9 when diagnosed 13 months ago (up to 132 in May, with a new blood test taken today, so I'll know the new count when I see my ID next week), is that even a small increase in CD4 is a good thing.  So folks with low counts, take heart and keep on taking your cART, and don't get discouraged if the trend up is a slow one.  Any move up is a good thing.  Focus on attainment of "undetectable" and your body will take care of the CD4's.  Good health to all: http://www.pri-med.com/pmo/MedicalNewsDetail.aspx?id=14364

Such data offer hope to those newly diagnosed and to those still adjusting to ART's.

Also gives a more up to date view of how ART's have changed the HIV/AIDS landscape.

Not useless at all.
