Performance evaluation of the Alere PIMA CD4 test for monitoring HIV-infected individuals in resource-constrained settings.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Enumeration of CD4+ T-lymphocytes is important in the management of HIV. However, standard laboratory systems based on flow cytometry are expensive, complicated, and thus unavailable to most resource-limited settings where a low-cost and fully automated point-of-care CD4 testing system is required. In attempts to address this issue, a study was… (More)
