What's the normal range in percentage for cd3, cd4, cd8, cd5, cd19 and cd20 antigens in peripheral blood for female adults?

What's the normal range in percentage for cd3, cd4, cd8, cd5, cd19 and cd20 antigens in peripheral blood for female adults?

Why do you ask?: You are of course talking about percentages of either all white blood cells or of lymphocytes. This question does not arise in general clinical medicine, and if someone has offered this to you without a strong suspicion of immunodeficiency or leukemia, you need to insist on an explanation. And in such workups, the search is either for a mutant clone or a grave deficiency; percentages are moot. ...Read more

Low cd57 and Lyme disease related?

Low cd57 and Lyme disease related?

In some cases but...: Noted lyme specialist raphael stricker discovered that many lyme patients have a low cd57 count (this is a subset of a type of white blood cell called natural killer cells) and that the level often increases as patents improve. However, not all lyme patients have low cd57 counts. A low cd57 may be supportive of a lyme diagnosis but a high level in no way rules it out. See my comment for more info:. ...Read more

No, but...: There are carcinomas that produce carbohydrates that can bind to type o blood cells and mimic b, but i've not heard of a lymphoma doing that. However, there are a few "weak b" blood groups that have typed as o's in the past. I'll bet this is you. Your blood bank knows how to deal with these. Best wishes. ...Read more

What do very high levels of cd3+ and cd8+ in blood mean (in the 2300 range)?

It depends: Cd markers tell us what subsets of lymphocytes we have in our blood. Cd3 is found on the surface of all t cells. T cells are involved in directing other immune cells and in killing other cells. Cd8 cells are a subset of cd3 cells, and are commonly called cytotoxic t cells. They can go up in a viral infection, leukemia, etc. You need to know your other subsets, and if any other markers are abnormal. ...Read more
