People with HIV who begin antiretroviral (ARV) treatment with a higher CD4 count and a higher CD4 cell to CD8 cell ratio are more likely to experience what is known as immune recovery, or two successive CD4 counts above 500, aidsmap reports.

Publishing their findings in the journal AIDS, researchers analyzed data from the French Hospital Database on HIV regarding people who began their first ARV regimen between 2006 and 2014 and then developed a fully suppressed viral load that they maintained for at least six years. The study cohort members also started HIV treatment with a CD4 count below 500 and higher than 50. They also had in their records at least one CD4 to CD8 ratio test result from prior to initiating ARVs.
