anti-Haart resistance vaccine
Aug 4, 2003
Dear doctors, while it is difficult to make vaccine for fresh HIV infection, it is likely very easy to make a vaccine against HAART resistance. For instance, if we want to make a HIV+ people never get resistant against Sustiva, we can do like this: First, collect 100 blood samples from those who are on sustiva and who has been known now sustiva resistant. Then mix these blood sample, add minimum amount of alcohol to kill all virus, then evaporate the alcohol by vacuum distillation, and then inject certain amount of this blood sample into a HIV+ people. I believe this people will be vaccined and will never get sustiva resistant HIV strain in his body and he will never die because of HIV.
I am going to apply a patent for my invention. However, I can not afford the application fee. Therefore, I open this for you for free.

Thanks for your comments and idea.
Unfortunately, to my limited knowledge, the determinates of drug resistance, like a mutated reverse transcriptase don't generate enough of an immune response to either suppress the virus nor be distinguished from drug susceptible virus.
