Abstract from a paper publsihed ahead of print in the journal "AIDS", from May, Margaret T. et al for the UK Collaborative HIV Cohort (UK CHIC) Study.

Conclusion:

"Successfully treated HIV-positive individuals have a normal life expectancy. Patients who started ART with a low CD4+ cell count significantly improve their life expectancy if they have a good CD4+ cell count response and undetectable viral load."
