In brief: No

Xla is a b-cell disease in which there are no functional b-cells and, hence no antibodies.
These folks are chiefly susceptible to bacterial sinopulmonary infections. Hiv is a t-cell disease that in advanced stages leaves creates susceptibility to certain viruses, fungi, and atypical bacteria.
