The NIH and MacroGenics’ research programs both involve bispecifics that bind to a HIV protein and the CD3 receptor. Hitting both these targets enables the bispecific to bring together killer T cells and HIV-infected cells and, in doing so, have the immune system attack reservoirs of the virus.

My initial reaction was the same.  For those that doubt that it could be their motive, see TAF.  They sat on that drug for years until the patent for TDF was nearly exhausted.  Not a conspiracy theory, just capitalism.

While I do appreciate that Gilead is not above sitting on this given their past behavior, they're not the only party working on the technology. Duke University's Center for HIV/AIDS Vaccine Immunology and Immunogen Discovery (CHAVI-ID) and MacroGenetics are one of the competitors.
