Scientific Information on CD4 Lymphocytes

Human Effect Matrix

The Human Effect Matrix looks at human studies (it excludes animal and in vitro studies) to tell you what supplements affect cd4 lymphocytes
Grade Level of Evidence
Robust research conducted with repeated double-blind clinical trials
Multiple studies where at least two are double-blind and placebo controlled
Single double-blind study or multiple cohort studies
Uncontrolled or observational studies only
Level of Evidence
? The amount of high quality evidence. The more evidence, the more we can trust the results.
Outcome Magnitude of effect
? The direction and size of the supplement's impact on each outcome. Some supplements can have an increasing effect, others have a decreasing effect, and others have no effect.
Consistency of research results
? Scientific research does not always agree. HIGH or VERY HIGH means that most of the scientific research agrees.
Notes
grade-b Minor Low See all 4 studies
While there does not appear to be any influence in healthy controls or with low dose colostrum, higher doses of colostrum in persons with HIV (reduced CD4+ lymphocyte counts) may mildly increase CD4+ counts when compared to whey protein as control.
grade-c Minor - See study
The decrease in the CD4:CD8 ratio seen with altitude training is attenuated with 2,500-5,000mg of the water soluble polysaccharides
grade-c - - See study
CD4+ Lymphocyte counts in subjects with HIV are not affected by alanylglutamine supplementation.
grade-c - - See study
CD4+ Lymphocytes do not appear to be influence with supplementation of garlic
