After reading about it for a few years, CRISPR is about to be trialed in humans to excise HIV from cells.  The hope is that enough virus (including latent virus) can be removed from the body to accomplish a functional cure.  It has already worked on primates that have SIV.

human trials ,    any thoughts

The same thoughts I had in 2016 about Dr. Khalili work with CRISPR when they cured a mouse and in 2020 on the primate. Scientifically interesting but no other thoughts at such an early stage.
