We conducted a study of 152 HIV-1-seropositive individuals in order to evaluate the possible correlations between the isolation of HIV from peripheral blood mononuclear cells or from plasma and CD4 cell counts. HIV was isolated from only 36% of plasma samples, and the isolation rate was closely related to CD4 cell counts, increasing gradually from 0% in subjects with greater than 800 x 10(6)/l CD4 cells to 88% in those with less than 100 x 10(6)/l CD4 cells. In contrast, HIV was isolated from… CONTINUE READING
