Abstract Among virological responders, the area under the curve of the CD4 count minus baseline (AUCMB) after 3, 9, 15 and 18 months of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) was less in individuals 55 years or older (P < 0.05). Fewer older individuals achieved increases of 50, 100, or over 150 CD4 cells/l. A random quadratic time course model estimated that the AUCMB decreased 35 cells/year for each 10 years of additional age during the first 12 months after HAART (P < 0.005).
