Table 3 Characteristics of participants involved in the determination of complete blood counts at initial detection of viremia

From: Association between the cytokine storm, immune cell dynamics, and viral replicative capacity in hyperacute HIV infection

  Pre-infection Fiebig stages I–II Fiebig stages III–V Chronic P valuea

Age in years 21.1 (19.8–22.1) 21.2 (19.9–22.5) 22.5 (20.8–23.7) 22.9 (21.4–24.3) 0.508 0.039 < 0.001
Viral load (log10 copies/mL) N/A 4.20 (3.50–4.92) 6.26 (4.88–7.20) 3.60 (3.04–4.31) N/A N/A N/A
CD4+ T cell counts (cells/μL) 891 (751–1047) 763 (538–911) 444 (367–553) 599 (470–756) < 0.001 < 0.001 < 0.001
  1. Values for age, viral load, and CD4+ T cell counts are medians and interquartile ranges
  2. aStatistical test used: Wilcoxon rank-sum test (Mann-Whitney U test) was used to compare the differences in age and CD4+ T cell counts between pre-infection and post-infection time points. Chi-square test was used to assess the differences in gender distribution
