CLINICAL MEASUREMENT - ANNOTATIONS

The Clinical Measurement Ontology (CMO), Measurement Methods Ontology (MMO), and Experimental Condition Ontology (XCO) are currently being developed at the Rat Genome Database. For more information about these vocabularies please see Shimoyama et al. Three ontologies to define phenotype measurement data. Front Genet. 2012;3:87. Epub 2012 May 28 or contact us (http://rgd.mcw.edu/contact/index.shtml).

Definition:The number of CD4-positive T helper lymphocytes in a specified volume of blood. Th cells are differentiated T lymphocytes which express the CD4 (also known as the T4 antigen) on their surface and cooperate with other lymphocytes, e.g. with B lymphocytes in the synthesis of antibody to many antigens; they play an integral role in immunoregulation.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: CD4-positive T-lymphocyte count
