Table 3 Increases in CD4+ T Cells after IL-2 Therapy; Numbers of CD25+ CD4+ T Cells

From: CD8 apoptosis may be a predictor of T cell number normalization after immune reconstitution in HIV

scIL-2 dose Baseline After 3 Cycles Change
7.5 MIU 16.6 ± 13.0 315.4 ± 196.7 299 ± 199
1.5 MIU 12.8 ± 13.6 110.6 ± 103.9 98 ± 111
Control 22.3 ± 15.6 52.3 ± 15.3 30 ± 23
  1. Numbers of CD25+ CD4+ T cells at baseline and after 3 cycles of scIL-2 therapy (week 24). The high dose IL-2 produced the greatest increase in CD25 numbers after scIL-2 administration. The high group had 4, the low group has 5 and none had 3.
