The test evaluates and monitors T-lymphocyte helper cells (CD4) and inducer T-cells. T-lymphocyte helper cells (such as CD4 cells) play a critical role in orchestrating the response to infections. After activation of the immune response, T-lymphocyte suppressor cells (such as CD8) deactivate the immune cells fighting the infection. It is important to control and manage the immune response. An over-active immune system can lead to tissue damage and auto-immune disorders. HIV-1 infection results in the decrease of CD4 T-cells, an increase of CD8 T-cells, a decrease in the CD4:CD8 ratio, and a destruction of immune function. ** Fasting is not required for this test**
