In this study, the dynamics of CD4 cell depletion during tenofovir/didanosine co-administration were analysed. Ninety-five HIV-positive patients were followed for 562 days, and 37 lost at least 50 CD4 cells, with a median delay of 274 days. Cox analysis showed that the CD4 cell decrease was associated with a duration of treatment by didanosine of more than 853 days and a didanosine dose of more than 5.50 mg/kg.
