n Southern African Journal of HIV Medicine - Immune reconstitution : immune reconstitution




In most HIV-infected patients commencing highly active antiretroviral therapy, viral load is reduced and with this subsequent immune restoration begins. Studies have shown that CD4+ T cells increase soon after therapy commencement, with the largest increase occurring in the first 3 months and the increase reducing in the 2nd and 3rd years. Immune reconstitution occurs even in those patients in whom severe immune suppression has occurred.
