Further analyses also identified blunted CD4 T-cell responses (i.e., reduced proliferation as well as IFN-[gamma] and IL-2 production by the cells) as well as decreased CD8 T-cell
numbers in draining lymph nodes of alcohol-consuming mice compared with control mice (Porretta et al.

tolerance," Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, vol.
"Direct comparisons between virus-specific CD4 and CD8 T-cell
numbers within individual vaccinees revealed dynamic and independently regulated changes in T-cell memory over time," they wrote.
However, other patients "preferentially lost" CD8 T-cell
memory "while leaving the antiviral CD4 T-cell compartment intact," they noted.

Subsequent sophisticated analyses of T-cell activation and proliferation in people with HIV showed that CD4 and CD8 T-cell
activations are tightly correlated, confirming that immune activation does not reflect an attempt by the immune system to replace CD4 T cells killed by HIV.
