Abstract

The study tends to uncover the epidemiological trend and association of HIV/AIDS with some immuno-hematological profile of infected subjects in Niger Delta. A total of 1000 subjects, made up of 464 males (46.4%) and 536 females (53.6%) were screened. HIV antibodies were detected using 'Determine' (Abbott Laboratories, Japan), Start –Pak (Chembio Diagnostics, USA) and SD Bioline HIV-1/2 kits (Standard Diagnostics, Korea).Out of this number, 107(10.7%) were sero-positive. The PCV of HIV positive subjects ranged between 24.00 and 48.00% (32.94±0.53),HB ranged between 8.00 and 16.00g/dl (10.95± 0.18) while WBC counts ranged between 3.30 and 16.30 Mm3(7.76 ±0.30). However, CD4 counts ranged between 210.00 and 937.00μl, with a mean of 480.55 (±13.44). At P
