Table 3 Main viro-immunological parameters of SSP with no herpesvirus detection or with any herpesvirus shedding at T0 and T1. Data are expressed as median and interquartile range (IQR)

From: Cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus and human herpesvirus 8 salivary shedding in HIV positive men who have sex with men with controlled and uncontrolled plasma HIV viremia: a 24-month longitudinal study

  Patients with persistently negative herpesvirus shedding (n = 7) Patients with the detection of any positivity at T0 and/or T1 (n = 33) p
CD4 + cell count/mm3 600 (250–802) 610 (480–782) 0.46
CD4+ cell percentage 31 (17.2–36) 27 (22.7–36) 0.87
CD8+ cell count/mm 800 (539–856) 943 (610–1249) 0.36
CD8 + cell percentage 43 (36.2–50.2) 43 (33.7–51.2) 0.95
CD4+ cell count at nadir (cells/mm3) 310 (87–456) 290 (135–380) 0.78
  1. T0: time of the first saliva sampling, after 24 months of plasma HIV RNA control analysis
  2. T1: time of the second saliva testing, 24 months after T0
