Usefulness of total lymphocyte count
in monitoring highly active antiretroviral therapy in resource-limited settings.
Many clinical and laboratory markers have been used to estimate the progression of the disease like HIV related symptoms, Plasma HIV RNA load, p24 Antigen assay, depletion of CD4 counts, Total lymphocyte count
, Haemoglobin levels, Body Mass Index, serum Albumin levels, neopterin levels, cutaneous anergy, elevated levels of b2 microglobulin, etc.
Characteristics of the patients in the two data sets were comparable except for a slight excess of pulmonary involvement, cervical lymphadenopathy, and miliary TB among patients with HIV-TB in the testing set; the body-mass index, mid-arm circumference, total lymphocyte count
, and serum albumin of patients with HIV-TB in the testing set were comparatively lower as compared to that with HIV-TB in the training set (Table I).
Leukocyte count was 8,600/[micro]L, total lymphocyte count
was 1,981/[micro]L, CD4+ cell count was 102/[micro]L, and CD4/CD8 ratio was 0.07.
