  • a Data represent individual values for the three different stratifications.

  • b Individuals with values above or below the mean values determined for all individuals were grouped as faster or slower progressors, respectively.

  • c The combined coefficient values represent a combination of CD4% decline rate and CD4% level. The combined coefficient values were obtained by transforming the CD4% decline rate values and CD4% level values, setting them to comparable scales, and subsequently multiplying them.
