To study the correlation between CD4 count &HIV-1 viral load among ART Naive patients attending ICTCSMS Medical College, Jaipur.Material and


This study was conducted on 250 HIVserologically confirmed, ART Naive cases from ICTC, SMSJaipur. RNA extraction was done from plasma samples byQiagen Viral RNA Mini Kit then HIV-1 Viral load wasdetermined by Qiagen HIV-1 viral load kit on ABI 7500 Fast dxReal Time PCR, while CD4 count was done on FACSCALIBUR flowcytometer (BD Biosciences). SPSS ver. 21.0was used to determine correlation between CD4 count & HIV-1viral load.


Out of 250, 216 (86.4%) cases were found in whichviral RNA was detected. These samples were correlated withtheir CD4 Count. The mean of viral load was 194746.2791 ±550442.61805 IU/ml while CD4 count was 282.7674 ±217.56456 cells/ul. Females were having Avg. Viral load228506.7273 & CD4 count 337.21 and males were found tohave Avg. Viral load 179791.9866 & CD4 count 258.65


This study concluded a negativecorrelation between HIV-1 RNA viral load and CD4 count inHIV-seropositive ART naïve patients of this part of the country.Our study confirmed that HIV-1 RNA viral load levels aresignificantly higher in women than in men, but no suchsignificant gender difference in the CD4 count was found.
