ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) on people with HIV. The author claims that HAART can reverse many of the immunological deficiencies associated with untreated HIV infections. It says that is associated to the peripheral CD4+ T cell count. Further, patients who are able to achieve normal peripheral CD4+ T cell count generally do well clinically and may even have a normal life span. However, patients with who initiate HAART with a low CD4+ T cell nadir have the highest risk of failure to achieve an optimal immunological outcome.
