Table 4 Patient stratification by CD4+ T-cell count, according GBV-C exposure status.

From: Prevalence of GB virus type C in urban Americans infected with human immunodeficiency virus type 1

  Exposed to GBV-C n (%) Negative for GBV-C RNA and Anti-E2 antibody n (%)
CD4+ T-cell count   
≤ 350 cells/mm3 81 (41%) 82 (52%)
>350 cells/mm3 115 (59%) † 75 (48%)
Total 196 (100%) 157 (100%)
  1. † The percentage (115/196; 59%) of GBV-C exposed subjects with a CD4+ T-cell count >350 cells/mm3 was higher than that (75/157; 48%) of those unexposed to GBV-C (p < 0.05; Chi-square test).
