The linear regression analyses showed that c-IMT positively correlated with age, time of diagnosis, immuneactivated and immunosenescent CD8+ T cells and negatively correlated with CD4+ nadir T cells. Immuneactivated CD8+ T cells positively correlated with immunosenescent CD8+ T cells and OPG plasma levels. CD4+ nadir T cells negatively correlated with immuneactivated CD4+ and CD8+ T cells.
