HIV Gene Therapy
« on: November 13, 2012, 08:11:50 PM »
Greetings all! 

I live near-ish to the Orlando area, and there's an immunology center that's running trials for HIV Gene Therapy, the only requirements are that you be on HART, be UD, and clean/sober....I was wondering if anyone here has experience being in a trial, or what your thoughts were...I'm very new to all of this, but am intrigued in being a part of something that could help others.

There are a few long threads (see Zinc Finger Proteins and Sangamo topics) on gene therapy in the "Research News & Studies" forum that you may be interested in if you haven't already looked at them.  While I don't recall any folks on the board being in these studies, there was a post that referenced HIV/AIDS activist Matt Sharp blogging about his participation (see the post info below).

I wish you well and look forward to hearing how this proceeds for you,
