Calimmune: Safety Study of a Dual Anti-HIV Gene Transfer Construct to Treat HIV-

<< < (3/29) > >>

Matts:
I wish the 3 brave guinea pigs the best of luck. It has to be a difficult decision; getting Busulfan and an unapproved Gene product.
I think that we will know the results in a decade or so.

Hoyland:
While not using the same targets as the Calimmune trial the City of Hope has run and is running a ddRNAi trial for HIV. One of the lead investigators is Dr Rossi. Here is a video of him speaking about the use of ddRNAi in the treatment of HIV. This may help some who are considering the Calimmune trial. Good luck.
