Further Thought to Hypothesis on HIV Alternative Treatment

May 15, 2006

Thank you very much for your prompt reply...

Following is what I am suggesting with my Hypothesis to tackle HIV --- "I have read that genetic protection occurs naturally in roughly 3% of people of Northern European ancestry--people who do not get infected no matter how often they are exposed to HIV" --- These people's T Cells have surfaces which are impervious to HIV...

What I am suggesting is that If T-Cells from these people (Northern European ancestry) be grown and replicated outside body and then injected into HIV infected.

Once injected, into HIV infected, these T-Cells(with genetic protection) will divide and always remain in circulation, uninfected by HIV virus....

Thus they'll perform the role of healthy immune system...

HIV+ patients injected with such T-Cells will have two types of T Cells, ones,which are his own and being destroyed by HIV, and other which are injected and cannot be infected by HIV,,,,,

While these uninfected cells remain in circulation, there are very less chances that there will be any opportunistic infection that can take place...

This will reduce any morbidity/ mortality caused by HIV..

I'll appreciate if you can Let me know whether this is possible...

Response from Dr. Holodniy

No that will not work per my previous reply. Another person's t cells could not be infusedd and would be destroyed by the recipient person's immune system because they would be recognized as foreign.
