Profiles of peripheral CD4 + T cells count during antiretroviral treatment in senegalese adults infected by hiv : impact of therapeutic associations
Infection with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) remains a major public health
problem despite advances in diagnosis and antiretroviral treatment. We aim to assess the
immune reconstitution in Senegalese adults living with HIV. At this end, we conducted a
cross-sectional study on 82 HIV-positive subjects under highly active antiretroviral therapy
(HAART) to evaluate the peripheral TCD4 profiles during treatment as well as sociodemographic
characteristics. Women were the most representative gender group (67%).
The median age was 42 years at the inclusion and HIV-1 was predominant serotype (90%).
At the beginning of HAART, median CD4 count were 250 cells/?l; 44% of patients living with
HIV (PLHIV) had presented the stages ??? and ?? as defined by WHO. During the follow-up
of 20 PLHIV1, we found a significant increase of CD4 counts with Combivir + Efavirenz
(363 to 444 cells/?l; p = 0.023) and the combination Combivir + Nevirapine (n = 11) (266
to 355 cells/?l (p = 0.021) and Tenolam + Efavirenz (n = 38) (258 and 465 cells/?l; p <
0.001). However, no significant difference in CD4 count was observed for PLHIV-1 under
Tenolam + Nevirapine (250 to 358 cells/?l; p = 0.108).For the Combivir + Kaletra secondline
treatment, median of CD4 count was 80% fold inPLHIV-2 and PLHIV-1+2 after 12
months of treatment. We also found a positive change in the median CD4 count except for
PLHIV-1+2 under Kaletra + Tenolam. We did not find association between the CD4 count
and the duration of treatment (rho = 0.201 and p = 0.359). Poor adherence to treatment was
observed in 13% of cases. Our data have shown that CD4T cells counts is an important
aspect of monitoring of HAART, suggesting that overall, the HIV-1 treatment lines used in
national guideline improve live of patients through enhancement of immune reconstitution.
