Implementation and Operational Research: Effects of CD4 Monitoring Frequency on Clinical End Points in Clinically Stable HIV-Infected Patients With Viral Suppression.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Current treatment guidelines for HIV infection recommend routine CD4 lymphocyte (CD4) count monitoring in patients with viral suppression. This may have a limited impact on influencing care as clinically meaningful CD4 decline rarely occurs during viral suppression.
