Among those with a CD4 cell count above 200 at the time of suspected treatment failure, two-thirds (66%) had a viral load below 400 copies, compared with 41% of those with a CD4 count below 100 cells/ [mm.
The consensus that's emerging is that treatment must start when the CD4 cell count is less than 200 cell/[micro]L, and that when the count is greater than 500, it's probably best to just follow the patient.
Fifty nine patients came for the regular clinical follow up every 15 days in ART clinic and were investigated for evaluation of CD4 cell count every six months following HAART commencement.
Co-infections like hepatitis B, hepatitis C, TB and pneumonia, among others, can cause a transient increase (which is called a blip) in the viral load and decrease the CD4 cell count, thus lowering the body's ability to kill the co-infecting bacteria or virus.
People taking AZT (zidovudine, Retrovir and various generic versions) had significantly lower increases in CD4 cell counts 1 year and 5 years after initiating therapy, and were also more likely to remain severely immunosuppressed than individuals taking an alternative drug.
