CD4 PercentageAudio (En español)

Also known as: CD4 Cell Percentage, CD4 T Lymphocyte Percentage

Percentage of white blood cells that are CD4 T lymphocytes (CD4 cells). In certain cases, such as during acute HIV infection or HIV infection in children younger than 5 years of age, CD4 percentage is used rather than CD4 count to assess HIV progression or response to antiretroviral therapy (ART).
