Abstract

When compared with other published series, the CD4 and CD8 values in healthy Indians were no different from those reported in the West. These observations have important clinical implications for the use of T-lymphocyte subset measurements in India, especially in the management of HIV infection. The normal ranges established by this study can be used as a reference for decisions made in clinical practice.
