Using CD4 counts to evaluate the stages and epidemiology of HIV infection in South Carolina public clinic patients.
CD4 lymphocyte counts decrease with the duration of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.
We used CD4 counts collected for clinic reasons to evaluate the stage of HIV infection and the epidemiology of recent HIV infections among attendees of South Carolina's public health clinics.
We measured the CD4 T-lymphocyte counts of persons newly diagnosed with HIV infection April 1989 through June 1990 at South Carolina public health clinics who returned for follow-up.
Of 812 newly diagnosed HIV-infected health department patients, 420 (52%) had their CD4 lymphocyte counts measured.
