Response from Dr. Henry
IL-7 shows some modest potential but is not close to being ready for routine clinical use to boost immune system in standard HIV situations. There are 1-3 reports of functional cures in the setting of expensie and dangerous treatment for cancer/malignancies with chemotherapy/transplantation. A lot has been learned from those experiences but application to standard patients remains impractical for the time being but there is renewed enthusiasm to try and find more practical approaches. KH
