Abstract

Objective: Changes in immunologic status were evaluated in 25 HIV-infected men randomly assigned to a 10-week stress management intervention or a wait-list control condition. Method: The authors monitored changes in number of transitional naive T cells (CD4+CD45RA+CD29+) over 6-12 months after the completion of the intervention. Results: Men receiving stress management had higher CD4+ CD45RA +CD29+ cell counts at follow-up than did the control subjects. This difference was independent of initial number of naive T cells and HIV virus load. Conclusions: Stress management is associated with immunologic reconstitution in HIV-positive gay men.
