BACKGROUND Studies in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infected adults have demonstrated association of total lymphocyte count (TLC) <1200/mm (3) and subsequent disease progression or mortality. The association of other surrogate makers such as haemoglobin (Hb), and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) with CD4 count and disease progression has also been suggested. This study was carried out to determine the relationship of CD4-positive T lymphocyte counts with TLC, Hb and ESR in HIV-infected… CONTINUE READING
