I would like to participate in clinical trials of CAR-T Gene Therapy. I would appreciate having someone to contact that can give me information about this.

This is amazing. Imagine how many lives could be saved, how much money would be saved if a cure was discovered. I've been pos for 28 yrs, since 21. In my early and mid 20's I would dream about a cure but doubting I would be around when it happened. Sign me up for this research study please ???? I have a feeling with a little help I could kick HIV out of my body once and for all. With tcells over 1000 and still undetectable my immune system is primed to kick some HIV arse. ???? #HIVisNOTaCRIME

Does this mean they've found biomarkers identifying latently infected HIV cells, which is the main problem in finding a cure? If not, how will these CAR-T cells find them? If you need chemo for this procedure, why not go a step further and get a bone marrow transplant from someone with the CCR5 Delta32 mutation? This seems to be the only silver bullet.
